He really is trying to ruin his career, isn't he? Only washed up has-beens agree to be roasted.
And let me guess: Lisa Piganelli will be there making her tired homophobic jokes since she can't get work anywhere else except on shitty shows like "Celebrity Apprentice".
Will Henry Cavill be there, throwing shade??
I hope he gets a royal ass fucking
I hope they bring up his Candy Mag photoshoot! Homegurl looked WAY too comfy doing that.

HC trying to "throw shade" would probably flop even worse than when The Situation from "Jersey Shore" tried to do a roast.
It might not be r8, if he's as big of a queen as DL is trying to make him out to be
It will be the same comedians as usual with Gilbert Gottfried at the end. These shows suck. Each comedian gets like 5 minutes and then they have 10 minutes of commercials. Check out this Gottfried roast of Roseanne.
R10 I agree - it's always the same damn unfunny "comedians" at these roasts (Gottfried, Lampanelli, etc).
Hasn't anyone shot Lisa Lampanelli dead in the street yet?
Jake Gyllenhaal is laughing somewhere.
Ya know, I like Lisa Lampinelli, but how does she get away with the shit she says????
She's basically channelling Andrew Dice Clay! I wonder if he has an opinion about her schtick?
R14, the difference between Lampinelli and Clay is that she's crazy for black cock even as she nails black culture.
R15 That whole "crazy for black cock" shtick was bullshit. I've never seen one pic of her with a black boyfriend, and if she was so crazy for it, why did she marry a white guy? That whole shtick was just so she could get away with all the shit she says about blacks. Same with her "I love the gays!" bullshit - only says that so dumb gays will let her say disgusting things about them in her "jokes".
It's amazing how dumb gays will let a woman say homophobic shit, but when a male comedian makes homophobic jokes, gays will jump all over them immediately.
Franco will find a way to turn the whole show into some pretentious performance art piece, then grouse about how misunderstood he is.
R4 Trying? I feel like he pretty much already has ruined it. No one takes him seriously anymore, and you'd have to go back pretty far to a time when people did.
He is sort of tefelony....He's already had a big box office hit and an acclaimed indie film performance this year....no matter what he does he keeps coming back.
I've never really paid attention to him, but I heard him on Howard Stern and I thought he was great. Very straight-forward and pretty funny.
Why exactly does he get such a bad rep?
The Oscars made it cool to hate him. Most of the negativity he receives is orchestrated by AnnE. The woman is a deep well of hatred, bile, and negativity.
Remember when he was caught sleeping in one of his Columbia classes? That probably won't make the cut.
He has ten movies that either have come out this year or are scheduled to come out this year. Jesus. He's in a lot of things that didn't get much attention also. If this is what he's doing, I wonder what he's turned down.
The thought of AnnE pulling shady Hollywood shenanigans and orchestrating the ruin of celebs actually kind of makes me like her.
I know people like thinking of Hathaway as a lily-white bitch, but she just seems like a huge dork to me.
I don't think he has connected with the public like past roastees. I think a lot of people will say "Why is he being roasted?" The roast of Pam Anderson was the best, imo, followed by Charlie Sheen, Bob Saget and David Hasselhoff. I think Heather Locklear, Michael J. Fox, or Brett Michaels would be good roastees.
Hmm wasn't he roasted like two years ago? I guess he liked it enough to come back a second time.
R22, don't act like that hasn't happened to lots of us.
B-list non-entities now get roasted? Who's next, Henry Cavill?
Cavill's A- list right now. "Superman" is here to stay for a bit.
[quote]Most of the negativity he receives is orchestrated by AnnE. The woman is a deep well of hatred, bile, and negativity.
OTOH, OP R21 seems to be an expert at negativity.
This was the most stupid thing for him to agree to. Only washed up has-beens agree to be roasted these days. No A-lister today would ever be caught dead at one of those trashy Comedy Central roasts.
It's like he's trying to ruin his career.
Yeah, someone said that already, R34.
r28 Back in THE day, you had to be at least 75yo, or they never would've even considered roasting you.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
