James Franco to be roasted on Comedy Central (with Instagram video announcement)

Comedy Central announces that actor James Franco will soon be roasted. From the network:

"... 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.

Here's Franco's video announcement:
