Finally giving us an answer to the age-old question “What if NBA stars Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan got together with everyone from Danielle Fishel to the cast of The League to Jean-Ralphio from Parks & Recreation, and the whole lot of them sat down at long, mismatched, fold-out tables to do a live-read of the script for the 1996 cinematic classic, Space Jam?,” Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan got together last night with everyone from Danielle Fishel to the cast of The League to Jean-Ralphio from Parks & Recreation, and the whole lot of them sat down at long, mismatched, fold-out tables to do a live-read of the script for the 1996 cinematic classic, Space Jam. And it turns out the answer is: I will like it.
The details — which are important, but also ruin the very fun possibility that they just all did this, like, because — are as follows: It was done as part of a recurring show called “The Live Read” at the UCB Theater in Los Angeles, hosted by comedians Jensen Karp and Sean O’Connor, and it was apparently filmed by Funny or Die for a video that will come out at some point in the future. But the future is much further away than right now, which is when I would like to watch it, so in the interim, please accept these short Zapruder-style clips courtesy of Karp (above) and a member of the audience (below).
Between this, the NBA 2K14 video game mod, the 30 for 30 parody, and the confirmed-but-also-probably-fake news story about the sequel starring LeBron James, the past few months have been boiling over with Space Jam content. As UPROXX’s top Movies About Cartoon Aliens Stealing Basketball Talent With A Space Laser And Playing A Winner-Take-All Game Against The Looney Tunes In Space expert, I can confirm that this is an acceptable development.
