Score another new adventure for James Franco! The multi-tasking, multi-talented performer is now being roasted by Comedy Central! Franco will be on the hot seat on an episode that airs on Labor Day for the comedy network’s annual roast.
According to the L.A. Times, “The special, which will tape in Los Angeles in August, will feature stars, comedians and others taking humorous, sharp-edged aim at Franco. “If only James Franco was a more successful, multi-hyphenated incessant creative risk-taker in different media, he’d be the perfect person to roast,” said Kent Alterman, president of content development and original programming for Comedy Central. “Oh well … I suppose we’ll just have to make do.” Said Franco: “I’ve dreamed about this Roast for as long as I can remember.”
However, there is a big perk for General Hospital and soap fans who never got the opportunity to see James Franco’s 90-minute documentary film “Francophrenia”. Now you can get a front row seat to James’ GH experience, immediately following the broadcast of the roast on Comedy Central, when the network makes “Francophrenia” available for viewing on their digital and VOD platforms!
So if someone from GH should roast James, who should that be? Will you be checking out “Francophrenia”? Do you miss James Franco’s portrayal of “Franco” now that he has been recast by Roger Howarth? Share your thoughts below!
