James Franco’s career is full of hyphens, as he’s a writer-director-producer-actor-social media weirdo, to name just a few things.

Each year, Comedy Central takes one celebrated celebrity, puts them in a chair and lets their friends take verbal shots at them. For James Franco, the star of this year's Comedy Central Roast, the friends included Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader and Sarah Silverman, and the jokes targeted his demonstrated interest in various art forms, his sexuality, which seems to be in question for some people, his squinty eyes and for his awkward attempt at hosting the Oscars with Anne Hathaway a few years back.
High on the list of actors who keep us guessing is James Franco, an actor we once might have assumed would comfortably stick with comedies throughout his career. But he continues to surprise, tackling drama and other genres, and even a soapy recurring role on General Hospital for a while. He's also dabbled in writing, directing and producing. And did we mention he loves art? That seems kind of obvious when we consider his credits, however his interest in art extends beyond the screen.
Since we learned that James Franco would be the guest of honor at this summer's Comedy Central Roast, we've been left to wonder which celebrities would grace the dais for the event.

And that includes a guest spot in a network TV comedy, as Franco has signed on for a 2-episode arc in The Mindy Project.
Picture James Franco looking relaxed and happy as he's surrounded by friends and comedians (and those who are both) who are mercilessly poking fun of him for the benefit of the crowd and the audience viewing at home. That's likely what we're in for later this summer when Franco steps up as Roastee for The Comedy Central Roast of James Franco. Comedy Central announced the big news today, noting that he'll add the moniker of Roastee to his ever-growing list of accomplishments.
Might as well get this out of the way. I don't watch soap operas. Probably because I'm not at home when they're on and also because they are pretty much the most ridiculous thing on TV... besides reality television and awards shows.
