In a 1988 interview with TV Guide, Sharkey revealed that he had cultivated a drug habit in the 1980s that required him to spend between $300 and $500 per day. He also confessed to having worked while under the influence. In 1986, Sharkey entered a drug rehabilitation facility for his heroin and cocaine habit. Shortly after completing the program, he was hired by Stephen J. Cannell for the role of Sonny Steelgrave on "Wiseguy".
