Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe: Peyton Manning, Bo Derek, Rob Riggle sign on
A handful of names have signed up to throw a fistful of insults at Rob Lowe.
Retired NFL quarterback Peyton Manning and actress Bo Derek will pay hard tribute to the not-unattractive actor on The Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe, the network announced on Tuesday.
Derek was Lowe’s costar in the David Spade-Chris Farley comedy Tommy Boy, and Lowe, as you may remember, famously /prematurely tweeted in 2012 that he had heard that Manning was retiring from the NFL. (Manning would play several more seasons with the Denver Broncos.)
Also hitting the dais — and hitting the former West Wing and Parks and Recreation star are Rob Riggle, Pete Davidson, Jimmy Carr, and, yes, the Roast Master General himself, Jeff Ross.
As previously reported, Spade will serve as the Roast Master for the Lowe-down, which will be filmed on Aug. 27 and air on Sept. 5 (Labor Day).
