You know him as the wonderful wizard of Oz, the guy who loves crazy smart monkeys, the one-armed hiker, a lab-coated doctor on "ER" and so many other roles on screens both big and small, but last night James Franco got a new part to play: Roastee.

Yes, El Franco himself was chosen by Comedy Central to be the subject of the channel's annual roast special, and the artiste seemed to be absolutely chill with handling the heat of those burns, which started from the very opening credits, in which every name was Franco-ized.

Roast Master Seth Rogen was on hand to dish it out, alongside comedian Nick Kroll, "This Is the End" co-star Jonah Hill, Sarah Silverman, Bill Hader, Natasha Leggero, Andy Samberg, Aziz Ansari and roast mainstay Jeffrey Ross.

Since it's so much more fun to watch someone else take the scorn of their friends and colleagues, let's relive the magic of last night's roast with the 14 best burns against James Franco, along with one surprise bonus burn he threw right back. Get More »

25 Cool Movie People Doing it Right on Twitter

Anna Kendrick's Twitter feed Twitter - @AnnaKendrick47

When it comes to Hollywood people on Twitter, there are basically four different types:

1. Those who just think they're way too cool for tweet school before setting virtual foot onto the platform in the first place (here you have your Megan Fox-style fails);

2. The ones that are obviously controlled by some P.R. lackey receiving triple-filtered fluff to post (lookin' at the noob, Liam Hemsworth);

3. Those other guys who totally should have had someone buffering their tweets and/or should altogether just avoid typing while under the influence of alcohol, anger or any other inhibition-lowering stimuli (most recently, Alec Baldwin); Get More »

'This Is the End' Only Happened Because Of Daniel Radcliffe

Emma Watson wasn't the only "Harry Potter" star approached about ditching her Gryffindor garbs and turning into an a**-kicking, looting and otherwise just not f**king around survivalist for the apocalyptic disaster comedy "This is the End."

The Boy Who Lived himself, Daniel Radcliffe, also got an early whiff of the pic's script  ... but he was quite put off by the foul odor of the then-stinker draft.

Seth Rogen Thinks 'Guilt Trip' Is Best Seen on Airplanes

Paramount Paramount

They say Hollyweirdos shouldn't s**t on their past work, because of that whole goes-around-comes-around thing, but man oh man is it hilarious when they do.

Seth Rogen, for one, laid a hot one on not one but two of his recent movies, and as if that weren't enough the furry funnyman even went on to fire away at a few other peoples' stuff too. Get More »

The 15 Best Things Said on the Set of 'This Is the End'

This Is the End Sony

Apocalypse comedies are all the rage lately – seriously, they're more common than Nicolas Cage movies right now – but in terms of originality, it's hard to beat "This Is the End."

The summer laugher, co-written and co-directed by longtime buds/collaborators Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, features six of film's funniest joke-slingers (Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Jay Baruchel) playing "heightened versions" of themselves on the night of The Reckoning. Better yet, it takes place at a Hollywood house party and features handfuls of celebrity cameos, many of which end in gory demises.

That leaves our six main players left to fend for themselves while utter catastrophe reigns outside of the house (Franco's) they've barricaded themselves in.

We ventured south last spring to behold some of the improv-heavy shenanigans on a soundstage outside of New Orleans, where Franco's Hollywood house had been constructed. Here are the 15 most notable quotables. Get More »

James Franco Paints Mural Devoted To 'This Is The End' In Brooklyn

James Franco paints a mural in Brooklyn for 'This Is the End'

Of course he did.

In the most recent installment of Zach Galifianakis' internet talk show "Between Two Ferns," the comedian asked weirdo superstar James Franco, "Of all the art projects you've done, what has made people roll their eyes the hardest?" And you know what? It was a fair question. Franco has a restless creative spirit that often compels him to do really annoying stuff, like a "mixed media piece" for the Stella Adler studio called "Collage" (it supposedly combined dance, theater, music and poetry), publishing a book of poorly received short stories and hosting the Oscars.

While his latest project might not be quite as obnoxious, it is similarly arty and bizarre. On Saturday he painted a mural dedicated to the co-stars of his new movie "This Is The End." Franco even chose a perfect location for his new piece, one synonymous with arty nonsense: some random wall in Brooklyn.
