Comedy Central sets July dates for Roast of Bruce Willis with JGL as Celebrity Roastmaster

The Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis is a go!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who co-starred with Willis as a younger version of him in Looper, will serve as the celebrity Roastmaster for the event, which tapes July 14 in Los Angeles, and will premiere on Sunday, July 29, 2018, on Comedy Central.

Of course, the Roastmaster, Jeff Ross, will be there, per usual, as this first official teaser trailer shows Ross and Willis trading barbs. Roll the clip!

“I’ve looked up to Bruce my whole life. I was genuinely honored to work alongside him and, in essence, PLAY him when we made Looper together,” said Gordon-Levitt. “He has treated me with absolutely nothing but warmth and kindness. And so I look forward to mercilessly making fun of him on TV.”

The rest of the dais of comedian and celebrity roasters for #BruceWillisRoast will be named later.
