This weekend, the cast of The Princess Bride will reunite for a virtual table read, all for a good cause.
The one-night only event – which kicks off Monday, 14th September at 9am AEST for us Aussies – will feature actors Cary Elwes, Billy Crystal, Carol Kane, Robin Wright, Chris Sarandon, Mandy Patinkin and Wallace Shawn along with director Rob Reiner and assorted special guests. A Q&A portion moderated by comedian Patton Oswalt will follow.
You can donate here via Act Blue in order to watch the table read, which is fundraising for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
“I think most people are aware by now that Donald Trump has completely abdicated his duties as President to represent and stand up for all Americans,” commented Elwes in a statement.
“He has failed to keep the country safe from COVID-19 and as a result he is responsible for the devastating chaos, violence, and economic collapse that we are now experiencing. If America is going to have a real chance at healing we must get rid of Trump. And that is only possible if we win Wisconsin.
“I am thrilled to be part of this very rare reunion of my colleagues from The Princess Bride as a way to increase awareness and garner resources for the state that will determine the fate of America.”
