You didn't think Comedy Central's upcoming roast of celebrity multitasker James Franco would be the last we'd see of the 'This Is the End' star on TV, did you? Silly, you.

On the occasions in which Comedy Central puts someone outside the realm of comedy to roast, as most recently with comedienne Roseanne Barr, we always hope they deserve it. Thankfully, this year will hold true as the cable network has seated 'This Is the End' star and "Academy Award-nominated actor-director-writer-producer-artist" James Franco on the throne as its latest roastee.

Boy, that 'Veronica Mars' movie is really putting its extra Kickstarter cash to work! Most of the casting announcements from the fan-funded feature film adaptation of the teenage private eye drama have revolved around former cast members signing on, or new roles created for the film, but the latest could be the biggest yet.

This is the way the world ends; not with a whimper but with an extended improv session featuring Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and a fleet of other popular young comics. On an ordinary night in Los Angeles, the straight-up-biblical apocalypse begins. After the Rapture, our six heroes board themselves up in Franco's Hollywood mansion and wait for a rescue.

'This Is the End' has one of the most meta concepts in recent memory. Seth Rogen, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill and Jay Baruchel play themselves, holed up in Franco's home while the apocalypse rages outside. It sounds like a recipe for either big laughs or disaster (although early buzz suggests the former), but two clips have arrived to give us a taste of what the finished film will feel like.

James Franco is asked often if they'll ever make a 'Pineapple Express 2' and for the first time we have an answer that sounds like a sequel to the 2008 hit is a lot closer than we think. The actor gives us our best update yet on 'Pineapple Express 2' and also lets us know that we'll never see a sequel to 'Your Highness,' a movie he says "sucks."

One of the gimmicks behind Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's 'This is the End' is that the cast is loaded with celebrities playing themselves. But that gets interesting when you have a performer like James Franco, whose life has become an art project. In this new featurette, you can see how the actors approached playing themselves.

Two of our favorite things on the internet are the Zach Galifianakis 'Between Two Ferns' and The Lonely Island web shorts. They are equal parts hilarious.

It's hard to describe but you're just going to have to watch for yourself because it's hilarious.
