Jerry Seinfeld. Jackie Gleason. Caroll O'Connor. And now? Fred Durst.
The Limp Bizkit frontman has signed on to star in a CBS sitcom that is being referred to as "Douchebag," in a move that is both surprising and terrifyingly real. According to Deadline.com, the show will revolve around a rock star trying to balance his family life with his career commitments.
The show will be written by Matthew Carlson, who worked on the short-lived ABC sitcom "Mr. Sunshine." John Schneider, Durst's manager/producer and Rob Schneider's brother, will serve as a non-writing producer.
While Durst has only guest starred on TV series like "House," the singer has directed a pair of feature films, 2007's "The Education of Charlie Banks" and 2008's "The Longshots." "Gold Cobra," Limp Bizkit's sixth album and first effort in six years, debuted at No. 16 on the Billboard 200 in July.
Check out Durst showing off his comedic chops alongside Method Man and Pauly Shore in the 1999 video for "N 2 Gether Now":
