James Franco will join the noble ranks of Flava Flav, Pamela Anderson, and Larry the Cable Guy later this year when he's roasted on Comedy Central. Franco made the announcement on Instagram last night ("Hey, yo, what's up? I'm going to get roasted on Comedy Central"), and the network confirmed this morning that the show will tape in August and will air September 2. Anne Hathaway better be roast master for this.
