Robert De Niro, Caitlyn Jenner among stars to roast Alec Baldwin
August 13, 2019
A real motley crew of notables is lined up for Comedy Central’s upcoming roast of Alec Baldwin.
Academy Award winner Robert De Niro, Emmy Award winner Debra Messing and NBA star Blake Griffin will join Caitlyn Jenner, Joel McHale and “Saturday Night Live” writer/actor Chris Redd are scheduled to lambaste the Emmy Award winning “Match Game” host.
In a short video showing Baldwin giving “generic responses” to the list of celebrity roasters, it was revealed that DeNiro –– who often plays Robert Mueller to Baldwin’s Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live’s” much buzzed about opening sketches –– would be one of the stars on hand to deal out the disses.
“Who?” Baldwin said when the film icon’s name flashed below him.
“Hopefully I’m gonna have a big sweet and sour platter rather than just getting roasted, but there it is,” Baldwin told ABC News Radio. “The word is ‘roast.’ It’s not ‘massage.’ The Comedy Central Massage. It’s the Comedy Central Roast.”
Roast Master General Jeff Ross will do the honors for “The Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin,” which is scheduled to shoot at Los Angeles’ Saban Theatre Sept. 7 and air Sept. 15 at 10 p.m.non the basic cable channel.
