Gird your schweddy balls, Alec Baldwin: Comedy Central has set Robert De Niro, Blake Griffin, Caitlyn Jenner, Joel McHale, Debra Messing, Chris Redd and Jeff Ross as the roasters who will join Roast Master Sean Hayes on the dais for the “Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin.”
The cable network had Baldwin himself reveal the lineup with a video announcement Monday, which you can view above. Actually, based on that footage, it’s possible the “30 Rock” alum has no idea who is roasting him — so this will be interesting.
Per the channel, additional Roasters and talent attending the event will be announced shortly.
“Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin” will tape at the Saban Theatre in Los Angeles on Saturday, Sept. 7 and premiere eight days later on Sunday, Sept. 15 at 10/9c.
Past roastees have included Justin Bieber, James Franco, Donald Trump, Rob Lowe, Bruce Willis, Charlie Sheen and David Hasselhoff, among others.
Baldwin has had a long acting career dating back to the early 1980s, with films under his belt including “The Departed,” “It’s Complicated,” “The Boss Baby,” and television roles including Jack Donaghy on “30 Rock” and Malcolm Widmark on “Will & Grace” — a sitcom his Roast Master also starred in.
In honor of the event, Baldwin and Comedy Central will also go halfsies on a $1 million donation to Exploring the Arts, a nonprofit organization that serves public high schools throughout New York City and Los Angeles.
The “Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin” will be executive produced by Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions. Christian McLaughlin is the executive in charge of production, and Jordan Ellner is the talent producer for Comedy Central.
“Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin” will air Sunday, Sept. 15 at 10/9c.
