Actor James Franco is set to become the butt of all jokes at the next Comedy Central Roast.

The 127 Hours star will be mocked by his industry pals during an upcoming U.S. Tv special, and he took to his Twitter.com page on Tuesday (09Jul13) to share the news with his followers.

In a video clip, Franco delivers the news in an unexcited monotone voice, mumbling, "Hey y'all, what's up? I'm gonna get roasted on Comedy Central. Be sure to check it out. They wanted me to tell you that."

Recent roasts have featured comedienne Roseanne Barr, actor Charlie Sheen and property tycoon Donald Trump.
