Comedy Central Announces Next Roastee
Another name has been added to a distinguished list that includes Justin Bieber, Roseanne Barr, James Franco and Charlie Sheen.
Comedy Central announced Thursday that Rob Lowe will be the next subject of their infamous roast later this year.
“Rob Lowe is handsome, talented, successful and handsome," said Comedy Central president Kent Alterman. "He needs to be roasted."
Lowe posted, “What a thrill to once again be following in Justin Bieber’s footsteps. I look forward to a night of hilarious jokes recycled from the James Franco Roast. I would like to express my gratitude to the members of my family who have passed away and therefore will not have to endure what promises to be a very special evening.”
Lowe most recently starred on Fox's The Grinder, which was canceled back in May. He's also appeared on Parks & Recreation, Brothers & Sisters and The West Wing. Before that, he was a member of a group of young actors in the '80s known as the "Brat Pack", starring in such movies as St. Elmo's Fire and The Outsiders.
