It’s a Wonderful Life is easily one of the greatest holiday films of all time. The film is set to be on rotation as the holiday season begins and the film will be coming back in December, only with a new cast.
Pete Davidson will play the iconic character of George Bailey in a one-night-only live virtual table read of Frank Capra’s 1946 holiday classic. Davidson joins Euphoria actress Maude Apatow, Ed Asner, Mia Farrow, Ellie Kemper, Carole Kane, Ed Begley Jr., Diedrich Bader, Bill Pullman, Richard Kind, B.D. Wong, and Michael Shannon for the event set to take place on Sunday, December 13th at 8 p.m. ET.
Matthew Asner, Co-Founder/President/CEO of The Ed Asner Family Center stated,
“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 join the cast as Violet with her creative flair. 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, while helping to raise money for The Ed Asner Family Center. It will be a very meaningful night!”
