The Charlie Sheen crazy train seemed to derail a couple months ago. You can only make so many tiger blood jokes. And while Sheen did a public speaking tour, and was recently booed at the gathering of the Juggalos, Two and a Half Men hired Ashton Kutcher and is going full steam ahead. We’ll see how well that works Sheen-free, but Charlie is not out of the spotlight, and on September 19, Comedy Central will air The Roast of Charlie Sheen. Check out the teaser.
The clip is – obviously- a parody of Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove, or How I Stopped Worrying and Loved the Bomb, and it points out the trouble with Sheen’s “meltdown.” Sheen is self aware enough to do this, so when he says funny weird things like “Vatican Assassins” et al. He knows what he’s doing.
Seth MacFarlane will be the roast master, and it seems likely that Jeffery Ross will be there. It’s hard to know if it will be a disaster or a disaster worth watching. And though Sheen has managed to keep himself near the spotlight, this is the end of this road until he does something illegal or does something like the Major League sequel.
