‘Fast Times’ Gets A-List Table Read for Charity

Dane Cook (of all people) is spearheading a Zoom (whatever happened to Skype?!) table read of Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982) tonight, Thursday, September 17, at 9 p.m. ET.

The read is a benefit, with proceeds going to Sean Penn's CORE nonprofit and to the REFORM Alliance.

You can watch it on CORE's Facebook page or on its TikTok, as well as on LiveXLive.

With special shout-outs from director Amy Heckerling and writer Cameron Crowe, the event features Cooke, Penn, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts Morgan Freeman, Henry Golding, Jimmy Kimmel, Shia LaBeouf, John Legend, Ray Liotta and Matthew McConaughey.

Can only imagine who will play who, though I guess Penn has a lock on Spicoli!

For me, the only complaint is ... I'd really love someone to have thrown Judge Reinhold and Phoebe Cates a bone here. I'd like to see and hear the originals revisit this hysterically funny, painfully awkward movie.
