None other than Academy Award-nominated actor James Franco. The Roast will take place on Labor Day 2013 and you can read the press release in the replies. Thoughts on who should be on the panel this time around?
That's a pretty huge win for Comedy Central. Though I enjoy the Roast yearly, they really scrape the bottom of the barrel for the person they honor. This is the first time that somebody that's currently relevant is doing this, IMO. It'll probably be a much bigger show with much bigger attendees & roasters. I'm not really a fan of Franco, but I'm excited to see who starts signing on for this as a result of him taking this step.
