    Sorry Brad And Jen, But Shia LaBeouf During The "Fast Times" Live Table Read Was The Best Part Of The Whole Thing

    Are they giving Oscars for Zoom performances this year?

    Perhaps you've heard that there was a virtual table read of the cult classic movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High featuring a lot of extremely famous celebrities.

    And obviously the ~big thing~ was that Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were in it TOGETHER and TALKED TO EACH OTHER.

    “hi aniston” “hi pitt” “how you doin?” “Good honey, how are you” “I’m alright” Not me freaking out. #FastTimesLive

    Like, I get it. I lived through their marriage and divorce, and this is one of the only good things to come out of 2020.

    All these actors reacting to Brad Pitt’s character jerking off to Jennifer aniston’s character

    But when you see beyond the Brad/Jen reunion, there's actually a more important and iconic part of this table read. And that's Shia LeBeouf's part in this whole thing.

    He played Sean Penn's original character, Jeff Spicoli, and he WENT FOR IT.

    Shia as Jeff Spicoli. He’s actually stoned and smoking a joint. 😂 #FastTimesLive

    Like, while the other people were zoomin' from their home offices/mansions/normal places, Shia was in a truck, smoking a joint, and sweating a lot.

    Shia LaBoeuf sitting in a car and visibly smoking is the highlight of the Fast Times at Ridgemont High table read

    It's...absolutely perfect.

    He commited 1,000% to playing Spicoli.

    Sean Penn’s reaction to Shia LaBeouf’s Spicoli is everything 🤣 #FastTimesLive

    And his fellow actors loved it (I think).

    When I tell you Shia LaBeouf was DEDICATED to this role. #FastTimesLive 😂😂

    Basically, any moment that Shia was on camera was a good, weird one.

    Shia is absolutely smacked in this Fast Times at Ridgemont High table read. “You’re a big dick...buddy” 😂

    I don't know why this doesn't happen more often.

    Because we need this now, more than ever.

    good morning to Shia LaBeouf and Shia LaBeouf only

    Here's the entire table read, which is an hour long, but probably well worth your time.
