Trainwreck waiting to happen: Charlie Sheen ROAST

Comedy Central said today that Family Guy boss Seth MacFarlane will host the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, which will tape in Los Angeles on Sept. 10 ahead of a Sept. 19 airdate -- which happens to be the same night CBS premieres the post-Sheen post-Two And a Half Men. MacFarlane has hosted two previous roasts.

Comedy Central's head of original programming and production Kent Alterman added:

“Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off limits in this Roast… which scares even us.”

These roasts are often therapeutic for a person,” Jeffery Ross (The unicorn in Toy Story 3) said, in an interview with EW. “These are things he needs to hear...I see this as a comedy intervention." Ross also hinted about the "long list" of people from Sheen's past, who might come back looking for revenge. “I think people are going to be blown away by the line up,” he replied “There has been interest from very surprising people."

"There's less [cocaine] left on the planet because of me, so roast away," Sheen acknowledged, laughing. "If that's what's in store for me, then bring it," he said, agreeing that cocaine and hooker jokes would probably be "vying for first place" in terms of frequency up on the dais.
