Got Labor Day plans? If you want my advice, they should definitely end with your TV tuned to Comedy Central for the Roast of James Franco. It's a good one, with roasters like Bill Hader, Andy Samberg and Jonah Hill slinging their best stuff. Plus, James appeared to be awake for at least 75% of it.

I took to the red carpet before the main event on Sunday to find out what people like Paul Scheer, Jeff Ross and the boys of "Workaholics" think of the man, the myth, the legend, the everything himself -- Mr. James Edward* Franco.
