Are you ready for one hell of a roasting? As we previously reported, Comedy Central is honoring the tireless phenom, actor, director, performance artist, teacher, etc James Franco, on Labor Day with their special The Comedy Central Roast Of James Franco which fans can chat about on Twitter with the hash tag #FrancoRoast!
The roast is being taped in Los Angeles this month on August 18th, and will be executive produced by Miles Levy and Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions, who also served as executive producer and director of the other notable Comedy Central Roasts including those of Rosanne Barr, Charlie Sheen, Donald Trump, and William Shatner!
Seth Rogen will serve as the Franco’s Roast Master Of Ceremonies, and that should guarantee some very raunchy moments! Rogen and Franco have teamed up before in Freaks and Geeks, and the motion pictures Pineapple Express, This is the End, and the forthcoming The Interview.
Francophrenia, the documentary style film about James’ time on the ABC soap, General Hospital will also be part of the night after the Roast on digital and video on-demand platforms!
Now watch this promo on the Roast festivities, as James Franco looks at himself in the mirror and asks himself, among other things, “Has Comedy Central ever roast somebody so good-looking?” And yes, the good looking star even kisses himself! Check it out and then let us know what you thoughts of the promo? And, if you will be watching the Roast?
