Charlie Sheen Roasters Announced: Mike Tyson, Jeffrey Ross, Anthony Jeselnik, Harvey Levin, Steve-O

The roster for the 'Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen' is coming into focus. The network announced today that Mike Tyson, 'Jackass' Steve-O, and TMZ boss Harvey Levin will join roast veterans Jeffrey Ross and Anthony Jeselnik in the quest to skewer Sheen like a Shish Kabob.

More roasters are expected to be announced in the coming days.

Ross, known as Comedy Central's Roast Master General, saved Sheen's nearly disastrous live-tour by taking the stage to rip on the torpedo-of-truth-teller. Jeselnik was perhaps the breakout comic star of the highly-rated Trump roast.

Tyson has been branching out into film and TV work in his boxing retirement, guest starring in 'The Hangover,' and an episode of CBS's 'Same Name.' Most anything that Tyson says in his signature high-pitched voice is instantly hilarious, and him going after Sheen should be funnier than the time he promised to eat his opponent's children.

Levin, whose gossip site TMZ has chronicled Sheen's myriad of misdeeds over the years, will be there too, presumably drinking iced coffee through a straw. So too will the now off-drugs 'Jackass' Steve-O, who will likely prove to Sheen that sobriety does not take away your right to be an idiot.

The debauched festivities will be presided over by Roast Master Seth MacFarlane, his third Roast hosting gig in a row. Last week we saw Comedy Central's first promo of the event, an homage to Dr. Strangelove.

Tell us: Who else would you like to see get the chance to roast Sheen?


The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen airs Mon., Sept. 19 at 10 PM ET.
