Mike Tyson, “Jackass” star Steve-O and TMZ founder Harvey Levin have committed to making fun of Charlie Sheen on national television.

Comedy Central announced today via news release that the aforementioned trio will participate in the upcoming “Roast of Charlie Sheen,” to be recorded on Saturday, Sept. 10, and broadcast Monday, Sept. 19, at 10 p.m. EST, shortly after “Two and Half Men” makes its Sheen-less season premiere.

Steve-O, a recovering addict who has done more than one ridiculous thing in public, and Levin, whose Web site has closely chronicled Sheen’s descent into Warlock-dom, are logical choices for Sheen commentary. As for Tyson, he came to Sheen’s defense earlier this year. Also, he knows a little something about straightening people out after freaky things happen in Las Vegas hotel rooms.

Comedy Central promises that more roasters will be announced, presumably in a slowly leaked fashion that allows the network to squeeze as much buzz out of this event as humanly possible.
