Are a bunch of celebrities about to find themselves locked in a house with Charlie Sheen?

British newspaper the Independent reports that the axed "Two and a Half Men" actor will star on the upcoming season of British reality series "Celebrity Big Brother." The paper said Sheen landed a deal worth nearly $10 million for his participation in the show, which is due to begin a new season in August.

Sheen's manager and Channel 5 did not immediately respond to TheWrap's requests for comment.

The Independent said Sheen will fly to England over the next couple of weeks to appear on the series.

Sheen's appearance on the show would put him in interesting company; celebrities on previous installments of the series include LaToya Jackson, former "A-Team" star Dirk Benedict, and Sheen's former procurer of female company, Heidi Fleiss.

The "Celebrity Big Brother" gig would be only the latest post-"Men" gig for Sheen, who will star in a TV adaptation of the 2003 Jack Nicholson movie "Anger Management."
