Originally posted 09/02/2013 04:45PM

For the Comedy Central roast of James Franco, the writer/actor/director/producer was braced for tasteless jokes at his expense. What he didn't know was that all the roasters were fair game, too.

"I've never watched one of these roasts. I chose not to research this so I had no idea that they were going to be roasting each other [too]. I thought I'd be sitting here for two hours bearing the brunt of it so it was a huge relief," Franco said. "I had a great time. Everybody was awesome, solid."

Before it airs Monday on Comedy Central (10 p.m. ET), we've selected some of the best zingers and put-downs to add some sizzle to your Labor Day.
