Press ReleaseNEW YORK, August 2, 2013 – COMEDY CENTRAL announced today that Seth Rogen has been named Roast Master for the “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of James Franco.” The event (#FrancoRoast) will tape at Culver Studios on August 18 and premiere on Labor Day, Monday, September 2 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Since first teaming up in 1999 on the cult-favorite television series “Freaks and Geeks,” Franco and Rogen have collaborated on some of today’s most outrageous and quotable movies including “This Is The End,” “Pineapple Express” and the forthcoming “The Interview.”

The “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of James Franco” will be executive produced by Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions, who also served as Executive Producer and Director of the COMEDY CENTRAL Roasts Of Rosanne Barr, Charlie Sheen, and Donald Trump, as well as the Emmy®-nominated “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of William Shatner.” Jonas Larsen is the Executive in Charge for the network.

I kinda wish this was flipped. Roast of Seth, hosted by Franco. This will still be amazing, as these roasts all are

no i'd rather it be his actual friends like rogen, hill, craig robinson, danny mcbride, his brother maybe..and probably jeff ross since he's done like all of them. not people he probably doesn't even know being there for the sole purpose of being super edgy

That's fair actually. I prefer when it is friends also. I'm just partial to those two.

The only good part of Roasts have been Jeselnik and Schumer since they joined. And Patrice...
