James Franco was oasted and toasted by fellow stoners Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Sarah Silverman, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, Jeff Ross, Aziz Ansari, Nick Kroll and Natsha Leggero on Comedy Central Monday tonight.
Rogen hosted. "How high was I when I said I would do this?" he wondered. Silverman made fun of Hill: "Right before the show started Seth rolled a gigantic fatty because that was the only way we could get Jonah Hill on to the stage…" Samberg coined the word, "Roastafarian." Franco finished with a flourish, calling Rogen "a gay stoner rapist" and admitting that the roast was "a big deal to a handful of teenage stoners on Twitter."
Franco has played drug dealers in Pineapple Express and Spring Breakers, a slacker prince in Your Highness, Allen Ginsberg in Howl, a trapped hiker in 127 Hours and the Wizard in Oz the Great and Powerful.
