James Franco is the next celebrity to get roasted by Comedy Central.
“If only James Franco was a more successful, multihyphenated, incessant creative risk taker in different media, he’d be the perfect person to roast. Oh well … I suppose we’ll just have to make do,” said Kent Alterman, president of content development at Comedy Central.
Comedy Central has also roasted Donald Trump, Charlie Sheen, Roseanne Barr and Joan Rivers. Franco seems totally on board to be the punch line, saying, “I’ve dreamed about this roast for as long as I can remember.”
“Comedy Central Roast of James Franco” will be taped next month and will air on Labor Day.
