Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been set as emcee for the upcoming “Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis.”
“I’ve looked up to Bruce my whole life. I was genuinely honored to work alongside him and, in essence, PLAY him when we made ‘Looper’ together,” said Gordon-Levitt. “He has treated me with absolutely nothing but warmth and kindness. And so I look forward to mercilessly making fun of him on TV.”
Roasters will be announced at a later date.
The Bruce Willis roast will tape at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on Saturday, July 14, and will premiere on Sunday, July 29 at 10/9c on Comedy Central.
It will be executive produced by Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions, who also did the roasts of Rob Lowe, Justin Bieber, James Franco, Charlie Sheen, Donald Trump and William Shatner.
