Guess what, you guys? Andy Samberg was added to the list of Comedy Central’s Roast of James Franco this Labor Day. Roasts are usually done on Hollywood’s easiest targets—Franco’s basically halfway there—like Pamela Anderson, and Charlie Sheen. The roasters are typically made up of the same crowd—Whitney Cummings, Jeff Ross, Lisa Lampanelli— but Franco’s appointment has garnered an impressive comedic roster, Entertainment Weekly reports:

Comedy Central is turning up the celebrity heat on its roast of James Franco: Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari and SNL vet/Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg have been added to the roster of comedians and actors who will take their best shots at the thespian/director/writer/producer/Oscar host. The network previously announced that Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Nick Kroll, Natasha Leggero, Jeff Ross, and Sarah Silverman will serve as roasters, while Franco’s This is the End/Pineapple Express/Freaks & Geeks co-star Seth Rogen emcees the festivities as Roast Master.

This is going to be fun.
