Additional "roasters" will be announced at a later date, according to Comedy Central.

Sheen has previously said he's looking forward to being the butt of jokes. "It's not like you can take any of it personally," Sheen said. "I'm actually looking forward to how creative they can get."

He added, "It's not going to be like, 'They insulted me!' Get over your cheap self. … It's a celebration of who I am …as a media figure, an industry figure, stuff like that, so that's the veneer that keeps it from being personal.'

Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen airs Sept. 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
