After Comedy Central’s announcement last week that ‘Pineapple Express’ and ‘This is the End’ co-star, Seth Rogen, had been named Roast Master for James Franco’s upcoming (and highly anticipated) Roast, fans were left wondering who the lucky souls actually roasting the multi-hyphenate would be.

On Tuesday, Comedy Central answered that question, and the results are impressive.

‘This is the End’ and frequent Judd Apatow co-star, Jonah Hill, has joined the roast, as well as Sarah Silverman, ‘SNL’ funnyman Bill Hader, Nick Kroll, ‘Chelsea Laity’s' Natasha Leggero, and Jeff Ross.

According to The Wrap, people are so excited to be making fun of James Franco that the production keeps growing, forcing Comedy Central to relocate the taping to Culver Studios on August 25th.

Additional roasters will be named shortly.
