‘Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Morgan Freeman, Shia LaBeoud, Mathew McConaughey, Sean Penn, and Henry Golding’. These are the names that are soon going to come together on your screens. And, we are not talking about any award show either. These stars are coming together for the all-star table reading of ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’.
‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’ is a classic of 80s that starred Sean Penn in his iconic role of Jeff Spicoli, the surfer guy. While Penn will also be a part of the charity all-star table read, he will not play the role of Spicoli. Our bets are that it would be McConaughey or LeBeouf but the roles aren’t disclosed yet.
The charity table read for ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’ is put together by Dane Cook and will release on Aug 20. The original director of ‘Fast Times’ Amy Heckerling will also make an appearance. Original screenwriter Camerin Crowe will also be present for the introduction event and he thinks the reading would be awesome!
The funds raised will benefit Penn’s CORE and REFORM alliance, formed by Jay-Z, Michael Rubin, Meek Mill, and Robert Kraft. Morgan Freeman will probably play Ray Walston’s Mr. Hand. Apart from Penn and Walston, the original cast also included Phoeve Cates and Jason Leigh. Judge Reinhold and Forest Whitaker were also a part of the ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’.
