David Wain, director and co-writer of the smash cult hit Wet Hot American Summer, has posted videos on YouTube and his personal Instagram announcing there will be a charity table read featuring the original cast of the movie on Saturday, October 24 at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT. The videos are nothing more than a list of the names of actors who will be present, which given everything they’ve all gone on to do in their careers since the 2001 comedy is really all that needs to be said. You can check out the trailer below.
The returning cast in late October includes Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Chris Pine, David Hyde Pierce, Jason Schwartzman, Josh Charles, John Slattery, Michael Cera, Alyssa Milano, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Ian Black, Ken Marino, Joe Lo Truglio, Molly Shannon, Bruce Greenwood, Michaela Watkins, A.D. Miles, Zak Orth, Marguerite Moreau, Michael Showalter, David Wain, and more.
Tickets can be bought by making a donation to the Biden Victory Fund, which will support Joe Biden’s presidential run–donations can be made from $50 all the way up to $5,000. There’s plenty of time in the coming weeks to get back into the summer mindset with Netflix’s accompanying series from Wain and company: There’s the 2015 prequel series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, and 2017 sequel series, Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later. That should be enough at least to keep you busy this coming weekend.
