James Franco's fabulously gay roast | Daily Xtra

James Franco's fabulously gay roast | Daily Xtra | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

Yes. Yes God dammit, this is being live-blogged. All right, some back story here: When they filmed the Comedy Central Roast of James Franco last week, reports leaked that there were more than a few gay jokes since Franco has famously flirted with queer culture.

But for the sake of fairness, I’m gonna sit down on the couch with my puppy and a box of Pop-Tarts and watch this thing in earnest and blog about it. For this is the internet, and over-thinking is the name of the game.
