Fred Durst is coming to a television screen near you.

The Limp Bizkit front man has been tapped to star in an upcoming CBS sitcom, tentatively titled Douchebag, Deadline reports.

The comedy will follow a rock legend (Durst) and the struggles of balancing his professional and personal lives.

Douchebag will be written by Matthew Carlson (Malcolm in the Middle, Sons of Tucson, Mr. Sunshine).

Durst, 41, may need to brush up on his acting skills. The musician's last TV role was in 2008, when he guest starred on Fox's House M.D. His only other TV credit was a cameo appearance on Fastlane in 2002.

On the directing side, the Nookie singer has had more success, calling the shots for The Education of Charlie Banks, starring Jesse Eisenberg, and The Longshots, starring Ice Cube.

Durst fans and critics are already reacting to news of the sitcom on Twitter.

I couldn't figure out why anyone would make #FredDurst the star of a sitcom. Then I heard the title & suddenly it made sense, one music fan wrote.

god #freddurst gets a sitcom and #alecbaldwin is quitting #30rock? i'm glad I don't pay for TV anymore, wrote another.

In June, Durst and Limp Bizkit released their sixth studio album, Gold Cobra, the first album with the band's original lineup (which includes guitarist Wes Borland) since Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water in 2000.

To date, Chocolate remains Limp Bizkit's most successful album, with more than 12 million copies sold worldwide.

Douchebag is the first television deal for Durst.
