While Jason Reitman is always having live readings of various films with tons of stars in roles they've never played before, Judd Apatow and Adam McKay are rounding up the real cast of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy for a live reading of the script as a benefit for 826LA's free programs for children. Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Jack Black will all be on hand for the live reading which will be hosted by Conan O'Brien. In addition, there will be "Big Deal Musical Guests" on hand. VIP tickets are on sale, but they're pretty damn pricey. Read on!
Here's the cool poster to promote Anchorman - Live! from 826LA:
The live reading will take place on November 21st at the Eli & Edythe Broad Stage, Santa Monica, CA. For information on VIP tickets, which will cost you $500, go to 826LA's events page right here. If you're going to this event, I will be infinitely jealous. To see this crew all together reading through the entire script should be a laugh riot and an experience of a lifetime. We're wondering who will read the parts of all the characters who aren't played by the cast members on hand. Surely O'Brien can fill in and maybe McKay and Apatow will step in to get in on the fun. Hopefully someone gets at least a short video from the cool event.
