Comedy Central appears to have spent a good chunk of money to promote The Roast of Charlie Sheen, with a couple showing “Carlos” as conductor of a steam train on the way to Goddess Harbor, Warlockia, and Winnington.
Comedy Central has secured one of Hollywood’s most notorious bad boys. The network has announced that Charlie Sheen will be the next Roastee. The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen (#SheenRoast) will tape in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 10. The Roast will premiere on Comedy Central on Monday, September 19 at 10/9c and will feature Roast Master Seth MacFarlane.“You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this Roast for a while,” said Sheen. “It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”
“Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off limits in this Roast… which scares even us,” said Kent Alterman, head of original programming and production, Comedy Central. Although known more recently for his infamous rants about the trials and tribulations of becoming a Vatican Assassin, Charlie has had a long an auspicious career. Born into a show business family, he had his first role as an extra in his father, Martin Sheen’s, movie “The Execution of Private Slovik”. Although he originally pursued a career in professional baseball, Charlie found fame early with his role in the 80’s classic “Red Dawn”. A versatile actor, Charlie went on to star in such blockbusters as “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, “Wall Street”, “Hot Shots” and “Platoon”. He took over the Michael J. Fox vehicle “Spin City” and later starred for eight seasons on the CBS hit “Two and A Half Men”, his departure from the show went largely unnoticed.
