roast-generic 300Though more will soon be announced, Comedy Central this morning confirmed the first round of comedians who will participate in the Roast of James Franco. Bill Hader (who just departed Saturday Night Live after eight seasons), Jonah Hill (Franco’s co-star in This is the End), Nick Kroll, Natasha Leggero, Jeff Ross and Sarah Silverman are set to join the already announced roastmaster Seth Rogen.

The event will be filmed on Aug. 25 at Culver Studios in Los Angeles; it was originally scheduled for Aug. 18 but Comedy Central switched the date in order to accommodate more roasters. The roast will premiere on Monday, Sept. 2 at 10 pm ET. That’s Labor Day, for all you patriots.

Check out the first two teasers for the Roast here.

    Looks like it could be a great roast. I wasn’t excited about the roast at first, but the more I hear about it the better it looks. Still don’t think James Franco should be getting roasted though. There’s so many more deserving people…
