James Franco is about to get Roasted. The actor will follow in the footsteps of Charlie Sheen and Joan Rivers and get mocked by his peers during the Comedy Central special.
Of the 12 people who have previously been Roasted, Franco is by far the youngest. The 35-year-old has done plenty of questionable things in the past few years, from signing on to star in and direct more projects than any person possibly could (he’s since dropped out of many) to trying his hand at art to teaching a number of various college courses. We’ve got to hand it to him; at least he’s a good sport about everything.
“Comedy Central roast – wsup,” Franco posted to Twitter to announce the news, along with the above Instagram video. Comedy Central later confirmed his reveal, tweeting, “The announcement of @JamesFrancoTV ‘s @ComedyCentral Roast was not a drunk tweet or a dream. It is happening! #FrancoRoast.”
Now the big question is: who is going to Roast him?
