A number of jokes involved Donald Trump, Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.
“If you were to do American History X today, not only would you win the Oscar, but also a Cabinet position,” Pollak joked to Norton.
“Trump told me [American History X] was his all-time favorite comedy,” Ross quipped.
When it was Willis’ turn, he didn’t hold back, telling Norton, “You’ve rubbed more people the wrong way than Harvey Weinstein.”
Norton gave as good as he got and arguably stole the show with his Willis “character study.”
Willis closed the roast with a strong declaration: “Die Hard is not a Christmas movie!”
Asked afterward how he thought that assertion might go over with a portion of fans who insist the action pic is a holiday film since it takes place on Christmas Eve, Willis said, “We’ll see.”
The roast is set to air July 29 on Comedy Central.
