Seth Rogen to lead James Franco roast
The prospect of Comedy Central’s upcoming James Franco roast got funnier on Friday when the network announced that Seth Rogen has been named Roast Master.
The two Jewish actors go way back, having co-starred a little over a decade ago on the TV series “Freaks and Geeks,” and more recently in the films “Pineapple Express” and “This is the End.”
The special will air on Sept. 2, improving Labor Day for fans everywhere and helping Jewish fans everywhere ring in the New Year (which hits two days later).
