Fresh off the news that the upcoming Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen will be an "intervention" that could aid the troubled actor in his recovery from the massive public fallout from "Two and a Half Men," Comedy Central has released the first promo for the special. And by the looks of it, the intervention could be a metaphorical explosion.
Referencing the classic ending of "Dr. Strangelove" (spoiler!), the promo depicts Sheen as Slim Pickens jockeying an atomic bomb, gleefully careening to inevitable doom. Which is probably a fairly apt metaphor for the breakdown he had with his former sitcom.
The Roast of Charlie Sheen, hosted by Seth MacFarlane, will air on Monday, Sept. 19 at 9 p.m. No word on whether or not there will be fighting in the war room.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article referenced the actor from "Dr. Strangelove" as Slim Whitman.
