Fred Durst to star in CBS sitcom

If you were a fan of Limp Bizkit, you’re in luck, because frontman Fred Durst is planning a comeback as a sitcom star. According to Deadline, Durst is working on a half-hour comedy project with CBS.

The king of nu-metal is set to star in and produce an upcoming series, which has a tentative title that rhymes with "mooshbag." (And no, we can't say it.)

The show follows a “rock legend” trying to balance raising a family with a high profile lifestyle.

Durst, 41, has had cameos in films like “Zoolander” and “Be Cool,” and did a guest spot on “House” in 2008. Durst actually directed many of his Limp Bizkit music videos, as well as the movies “The Education of Charlie Banks” and “The Longshots.”

(Also, remember when Fred allegedly dated Britney Spears?)

Will you watch what we're going to call "Mooshbag" or is Snoop Dogg’s similar-sounding sitcom more your speed?

    Les Moonves just told his minions to take out the balled up pieces of paper with ridiculous ideas and just keep reading them until one of the ideas moves him. This is what resulted when he reached up to stretch. His minions thought he agreed to THIS one.

    Dumbest. Idea. Ever. Cancellation. Can't. Come. Soon. Enough.

    Limp Bizkit had one great album. Seeing Durst with an upcoming show says that they are a 'One hit wonder'. Durst is reaching fame status no larger than Vanilla Ice, when they could have been Linkin Park. Boo! Kids these days don't even know who you are.

    Fred Durst was already a caricature of himself when his band was big.I wish I could count how many times I heard people say "I like Limp Bizkit, I just hate Fred Durst." This show will be as awful as a three dolla bill, ya'll.

    i can't believe someone actually read this and cared enough to make a non-ironic comment about the subject matter- looking at you office drone

      I can't believe you cared about his comment more than he probably cared about yours.

    I don't think this sounds good. It would be much funnier to see him play a caricature of himself like Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm or Neil Patrick Harris in the Harold and Kumar movies.

      By caricature, do you mean an exaggerated character like Larry David on Curb or a completely fictional character played by an actor using his own name and likeness, like NPH in Harold and Kumar?

      Premise aside, does anyone want to see Fred Durst star in anything? He's not an actor. He's not even a singer, and his Chino Moreno impersonation wore thin after 1 album.

      Maybe I just woke up in 1998 this morning. Basketball's locked out, CNN is reporting on controversy involving a leader in a former Soviet republic and commercial broadcast TV still grasps at straws for show concepts.

      I mean I would prefer either of those options to what this is. In the grand scheme of things, Fred Durst never mattered, and Limp Bizkit is all but forgotten. To see him play an iconic rock star on a sitcom would be more than a little pathetic.

    I think it said Fred plays salsa music or something. We dont need another show featuring dang mariachi salsa music. It is gross.
