Richard Linklater's cult classic high school comedy from 1993 is officially getting a reunion. As if we weren't spoiled enough when we got to see Matthew McConaughey rewatch his audition tape for his now-iconic stoner character decades later. But now, the Dazed and Confused cast members are getting back together again to raise money for mail-in voting in the state of Texas. For the small price of a donation of your choosing, you'll get to see the cast in a table read moderated by comedian Patton Oswalt. Alright, Alright, Alright.
Original cast members including Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck, Parker Posey, Jason London, Anthony Rapp, Adam Goldberg, Nicky Katt, Christine Harnos, Deena Martin, Esteban Powell, Catherine Morris, Joey Lauren Adams, Wiley Wiggins, Marissa Ribisi, Rory Cochrane and Cole Hauser (yay Yellowstone fans!) will all reunite for the virtual table reading fundraiser on October 11th. The live stream will air at 7:30 pm EST. Click here to make your donation to the Voto Latino Foundation and March For Science and book your spot for the live event.
Patton Oswalt will also be holding a live Q&A following the script reading. This isn't the first iconic cast to get the band back together again in order to promote vote initiatives. The Princess Bride was another cast that recently reunited for a hilarious live table read. Their event was held with the help of the Wisconsin Democratic Party in support of Joe Biden.

"With a pandemic raging during an election year, this country should be investing in every possible measure to keep voters safe," Voto Latino managing director Danny Friedman told Rolling Stone. "No one should be forced to choose between their health and their vote. Unfortunately, the state of Texas does not allow COVID-19 to be used as a reason for mail-in voting. Voto Latino Foundation has registered 215,964 voters in Texas, and each one of them will be making their voices heard in November, despite the state's intransigence."
