Comedy Central Roast is returning this year and will make Bruce Willis its next victim. Comedy Central announced on Tuesday that Die Hard actor will follow the footsteps of Charlie Sheen, Justin Bieber, Pamela Anderson, William Shatner, and Rob Lowe as the special’s Roastee.

“This ain’t the first time I’ll be tied to a chair and held hostage by a group of humorless assholes for a couple hours,” said Willis in a statement.

The Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis will be taped in Los Angeles this summer, while the premiere date is still unknown.

“Bruce has survived terrorists, Armageddon, romance and death itself. Yet nothing has prepared him for this roast,” said Comedy Central president Kent Alterman.

Premiering in 2003, Comedy Central Roast are annual specials that air on Comedy Central and feature various celebrity guests who are invited to roast, mock, and make fun of each other and the subject of the Roast or Roastee. So far, 15 specials have been aired with the latest one being Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe.

After being featured in only two movies in 2017, Bruce Willis entered 2018 with full throttle. The 63-year-old stars in the remake of 1974’s Death Wish, and will also return as David Dunn in M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass. His other upcoming projects include movies The Bombing, Acts of Violence, and Reprisal.
