Earlier this month, Seth Rogen was announced as the Roast Master for the Comedy Central Roast of James Franco. Now, a few more funnymen and women are getting in on the roasting.
Comedy Central announced on Tuesday, Aug. 13, that Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader, This Is The End star Jonah Hill, The League's Nick Kroll and comedians Natasha Leggero, Jeff Ross, and Sarah Silverman will all be speaking on behalf of the 35-year-old actor.
Roast Master Rogen and Franco have been close friends since first teaming up on FOX's 1999 cult-favorite Freaks and Geeks, and have emerged as a go-to comedy duo as of late, collaborating on films such as Pineapple Express and This Is The End.
Franco joins an illustrious list of former Comedy Central roastees, which include Roseanne Barr, Charlie Sheen and Donald Trump.
The event, taping August 18, airs on Labor Day, Monday, September 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
