Quentin Tarantino will feel the heat at a Friars Club Roast

08.26.2010

If you've ever seen a celebrity roast, you know that the "guest of honor" will be peppered by good-natured but accurate barbs from a gathering of celebrity acquaintances.

So regardless of whether you're a fan or a hater of filmmaker Quentin Tarantino and his works, you'll be interested in seeing him as a magnet for an endless salvo of snide remarks. QT will bravely plant his butt in the hot-seat for the 2010 Friars Club Roast, taking place at the New York Hilton on Friday, October 1st.

Samuel L. Jackson acts as "Roastmaster," and guests include Pam Grier, Neve Campbell, Michael Madsen, Eli Roth, Patricia Arquette, Rob Schneider, Uma Thurman, Bob & Harvey Weinstein, Sarah Silverman, Bo Svenson, Rosario Dawson, Michelle Rodriguez and, for no good reason, Kathy Griffin.

Jackson says: "I'm excited Quentin asked me to be the Roastmaster at his Friars Club Roast. Having known Quentin as long as I have now, there are many stories I've kept tucked away for a moment like this. I'm not so sure he won't regret asking me once the afternoon is over!"

Extra Tidbit: Since this Roast will undoubtedly be filled with profanity and off-color humor, let's hope footage gets aired or released unedited at some point.

confused?

kathy griffin is not the only odd person on this list (and i read the post that they dated). what about neve campbell? what's that connection? ROB SCHNEIDER??? really? And Michelle Rodriguez? Did he date the two girls? I'm confused. Where's Robert Rodriguez? Can someone clear this up?

And...will this be televised? Or is there any way people like me will be able to watch this?

Nah, they all had small roles in Tarantino's universe, respectively.

Eli Roth too? Shocker!

I'm not surprised Roth will be there I mean he's been walking behind Tarantino since he came in to film like a five year old and his dad. Enjoy this moment Roth, you won't be here in five years.

oh my god dude, why do you even come here? Every single fucking post you make is just some grab at straws to bitch about something vaguely related for no good reason.

Go away - you do not like movies.

Hey, I respect Terminal's posts. The dude is just projecting his opinion, just like the rest of us. Just because he doesn't go with the grain to your opinion, doesn't mean he's an idiot. I do want to say though Terminal, that your perception (again, in my opinion) of Eli Roth is wrong. The guy is an outstanding actor. I would like to see him in more roles outside of the Tarantino universe. But that's for Hollywood to decide, not us.

I had heard Madsen was on bad terms with QT because of a million dollar debt, so seeing Madsen on the guest list is surprising

you mean they actually got a real guest of honor unlike the comedy centtral knock-off? The comedians are generally good but it's always like what's the point. Comedy Central sgould pick up the friar's club roasts

agreed... Comedy Central roasts are always the same thing: make fun of the person for how irrelevant they are now, and how bad they are at their trade (acting, rapping... whatever). That's why they can have the same comedians every year: you don't even have to know the person to mock them. So corny. Friar's club FTW

if you watched the making of documentary on Cabin Fever (before he met QT) you'd feel ashamed for bashing a true indie horror success story.

And imagine your idol took you under his wing... you'd say "no, thanks"?

That doesn't change the fact that Cabin Fever was an awful movie. As well as Hostel and Hostel 2.

those "facts" are your opinions... easy to sit on the sidelines and throw stones but Roth put his ass on the line to raise money, write scripts, direct and produce. can you do the same and come out with the money makers and cult following he did?

Not for no reason.

Kathy Griffin is there because Quentin and her dated in the early '90s. She's also in Pulp Fiction, she's the woman who offers to get Marcellus Wallace a lawyer after Butch hits him.
