‘Anchorman’ cast to do a live read of the script
There are Anchorman fans, and then there are Anchorman FANS. There’s a difference between whipping out a Sex Panther joke every so often and paying $500 to watch the cast and crew of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy do a live read of the script. That actually sounds like a pretty great way to spend half a K if you’ve got it lying around. Co-writer/director Adam McKay and producer Judd Apatow will be on hand with Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, and Jack Black. Conan O’Brien will host the show, which will take place in Santa Monica on November 21. “Big deal musical guests” are also promised, which might mean some jazz flute. The event is a benefit for 826LA, a nonprofit that provides educational programs for children. If you’re a rich comedy fan or just someone that enjoys giving back to kids, pick up your tix here.
