Charlie Sheen may not be be among “Men” anymore, but at least for a night, he’ll be with a “Family Guy.”
Comedy Central announced Thursday (Aug. 11) that Seth MacFarlane, creator of “Family Guy,” “American Dad” and “The Cleveland Show” will host the upcoming roast of Sheen.
MacFarlane is clearly excited about the opportunity to tear apart the recently fired “Two and a Half Men” star. And it appears that the insults have already begun.
“Charlie is a true icon with a talent that is strong and pure and concentrated into small crystals which can be smoked or eaten,” MacFarlane says in a statement.
This marks the third time MacFarlane has served as roast master, with the previous two times searing Donald Trump and David Hasselhoff.
While the rest of the lineup has yet to be announced, it’s certain that there’s no shortage of material these comics will have to choose from. Sheen’s colorful past, in addition to his tumultuous departure from “Two and a Half Men,” includes arrests, prostitutes, rehab and the film “Men at Work.”
The roast airs Sept. 19 at 10 p.m. ET, the same evening as the debut of Ashton Kutcher on the new “Two and a Half Men.”
