LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Friday evening’s scheduled live table read of “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” featuring Sean Penn and other stars, has been postponed indefinitely due to “technical difficulties,” organizers said.
Penn, who co-starred in the 1982 classic, was scheduled to be joined by Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Shia LaBeouf, Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts, Jimmy Kimmel, Dane Cook, Morgan Freeman and Henry Golding to raise funds for multiple organizations.READ MORE: Firefighters Respond To Commercial Building Fire In South El Monte
