Now, I love Pete Davidson and his butthole eyes as much as the next person, but I don’t necessarily put him in the same league as JIMMY STEWART.
Thankfully, the upcoming remake of It’s a Wonderful Life won’t be a big screen movie, but rather a one-night-only live virtual table read of the beloved script set to lifestream at 5 p.m. PST and 8 p.m. EST on Sunday, Dec. 13.
He headlines a veteran all-star cast featuring Maude Apatow, Mia Farrow, Ellie Kemper, Bill Pullman, Richard Kind, Carol Kane, Ed Begley Jr., Diedrich Bader, B.D. Wong, Michael Shannon “and special surprise guests.”
Proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Ed Asner Family Center, which is dedicated to promoting mental health and enrichment programs for special needs children and their families. Advance tickets are available for $50 to $250 at EdAsnerFamilyCenter.org.
“We are so thrilled to have Pete reenact the role of George in ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ with his talented wit and clever vocalizations. And we look forward to having Maude Apatow join the cast as Violet with her creative flair,” said Matthew Asner, co-founder of the Ed Asner Family Center, in a statement. “Please join us for this once in a lifetime opportunity to snuggle up on your couch and experience this all-star cast virtual table read from the comfort of your own home . . . It will be a very meaningful night!”
