James Franco to be featured in next Comedy Central Roast

 
COMEDY CENTRAL has announced who the next star of the ongoing series, ‘Comedy Central: Roast’ will be, and it’s none-other than James Franco.
 
The network made the confirmation earlier this morning stating that it will be “rolling out the red carpet for the multi-hyphenated and extremely talented James Franco”. The network announced today that Franco will be adding a new moniker to his ever growing list of accomplishments as this year’s Roastee. The “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of James Franco” (#FrancoRoast) will tape in Los Angeles in August and premiere on Labor Day.
 
“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. Oh well… I suppose we’ll just have to make do,” said Kent Alterman, President, Content Development & Original Programming, COMEDY CENTRAL.
“I’ve dreamed about this Roast for as long as I can remember,” said Franco.
