Comedian Dane Cook worked with the nonprofit CORE and an all-star A-list cast to do a table read of the classic 1982 comedy “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” The celebrity cast included Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew McConaughey, Jimmy Kimmel, John Legend, Ray Liotta, Julia Roberts, Shia LaBeouf, Morgan Freeman and Henry Golding. Technical difficulties prevented the entire reading from being recorded, but what was is a blast to watch, if not for any other reason than watching original Jeff Spicoli Sean Penn react to Shia LaBeouf’s interpretation of the character. The reading concluded with a brief appearance by screenwriter Cameron Crowe and director Amy Heckerling.
