A star-studded virtual table reading of the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High is taking place next week and it’s going to be great!

The 1982 movie starred Sean Penn, was directed by Amy Heckerling, and was written by Cameron Crowe. While Sean will be participating in the table reading, he will not be reprising his role as Jeff Spicoli.

Dane Cook is presenting the “Feelin’ A-Live” fundraiser to benefit the emergency relief nonprofit CORE, which was co-founded by Sean, as well as the criminal justice reform organization REFORM Alliance.

The cast will include Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Matthew McConaughey, Henry Golding, Shia LaBeouf, and Morgan Freeman. More casting will be announced soon and the roles they’re playing won’t be revealed until the event takes place.

“On behalf of our dedicated team at CORE, I’m so appreciative of the support Dane has given and continues to give to our work. I’m always game for a giggle. So, to gather remotely for a night of laughs with so many talented folks while providing CORE with much-needed resources to continue our vital work, then consider us fully onboard to play!” Sean said in a statement.

The event will stream live on Facebook on Thursday (August 20) at 9pm ET / 6pm PT.

Here’s what the 50-year-old actor and 38-year-old model and designer had to say…

Camila, on why she and Matthew began Just Keep Livin’, a non-profit they founded in 2008 to empower high school students to lead active lives and make healthy choices: “When you have your first child and you’re in the position that Matthew is, whoever gets that first photo will make a lot of money. When we found out that the person was going to make over a million dollars on a photo, we were like, ‘No. We’re going to do an exclusive and get the money and put it into the foundation.’”

Matthew, on giving back: “Being able to give back in ways is a selfish endeavor. It feels good to me to see a smile or hear a young person say thank you. That’s called a selfless act? I call it a selfish act.”

Matthew, on how he raises his children: “Sometimes loving your kids means giving them just what they want. Other times it means tough love. Affluent people can give their kids everything they want, but they’re not usually going to get what they need. Loving a child is a lot harder if you really give a damn. ‘No’ takes a lot more energy. It’s a lot easier to say ‘yes.’”

Matthew, on which one of them says “no” more: “From the snicker that my wife’s giving me, it seems that I’m more consistently the yes guy. She’s probably right.”

Matthew recently had an uncomfortable conversation…

“I’m here to have a conversation hopefully promote more conversation and with the end goal being that we take the time we are now in to constructively turn the page in history through some righteous and justifiable change,” he explained.

“You have to acknowledge there’s a problem so that you can take more ownership for the problem. You have to acknowledge implicit bias; you have to acknowledge that you’ll see a black man and for whatever reason, you would view them as more of a threat than the white man – probably because society told them to,” Emmanuel explained to Matthew.

Here are resources to help support the Black Lives Matter cause.
