Watch: 'Space Jam' Live-Read with Paul Scheer, Blake Griffin & More
Though director Jason Reitman has been hosting special events at LACMA with live-readings of various scripts like Groundhog Day and Boogie Nights, but with different actors in the roles, awhile back, we became privy to a different live read that happened at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in Los Angeles. NBA all-star Blake Griffin sat down with Paul Scheer, Seth Green, Ralph Garman, Danielle Fishel and Nick Kroll and more for a live script-reading of the 1996 live-action, animated hybrid Space Jam. The result is something truly hilarious and unique, and we hope more of these will happen later. Watch it!
Here's just part of the live-reading of Space Jam from the UCB Theater in LA (via Funny or Die):
While Reitman is busy taking classic or revered films and creating live-reads, the people at UCB and Funny or Die could easily do this with cult classics and terrible films. We just wish that the whole video of this show was available online somewhere as opposed to just this 10-minute highlight reel, especially since half of it just features the stage players reminiscing about the movie itself. Anyway, this is still very entertaining, and there has to be some way for this to continue with other films. How about a live-read of Mac and Me?
