“Hi Brad, you know how cute I always thought you were.”
That’s because Brad and Jen ended up taking on one of the most, um, awkward — and memorable — scenes in the film: The one where Linda Barrett, played by Phoebe Cates, walks in on Brad Hamilton (Judge Reinhold), imagining her topless and more.
He introduced himself: “Brad will be reading the character of Brad.” And, wow, did he come prepared with props and all.
As did Jen.
And Jen’s delivery was just so good when she said the lines, “Hi Brad, you know how cute I always thought you were. I think you’re so sexy. Will you come to me?”
It was definitely a moment.
Of course, Brad and Jen weren’t the only actors in attendance — the cast for the table read had a lot of really familiar faces.
The table read wasn’t the whole script, but instead some “classic scenes” — like the one Brad and Jen did.
While Brad and Jen’s exchange was definitely the evening’s climax (sorry), Shia LaBeouf deserves some kind of award for his performance.
Brad was really in awe of Shia’s Spicoli.
No one has ever been this committed to a table read before.
