Unless you are a Nancy Grace obsessive (and who isn’t!?), it’s kinda a slow news days. BUT! Charlie Sheen makes headlines again in a bid to steal the thunder of Ashton Kutcher and the “Two and a Half Men” team. Even if you are a fan of the show, you must admit the off-camera theatrics have long since surpassed those on camera in terms of pure entertainment value.
NEW YORK (AP) – There should be no shortage of material.
Comedy Central said Tuesday that Charlie Sheen has agreed to be the subject of its next celebrity roast. It will be taped in Los Angeles and air on Sept. 19.
That also happens to be the same night that Ashton Kutcher debuts as Sheen’s replacement in the CBS comedy “Two and a Half Men.” Sheen was thrown off the show after his hard partying forced a production shutdown.
The two programs won’t compete directly. The Comedy Central roast is scheduled for 10 p.m., an hour after “Two and a Half Men.”
Sheen says: “You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this roast for a while. It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”
