Charlie Sheen has been announced as the subject for the next Comedy Central Roast.

The former Two and a Half Men actor will record his episode in September, with a scheduled US air date of September 19, the same night that Ashton Kutcher makes his debut on Sheen’s former sitcom.

“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,” Sheen said.

Comedy Central’s head of original programming and production Kent Alterman said in a statement: “Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off limits in this roast… which scares even us.”

We will have details soon of the Canadian airdate.
