The charity table read is easily the bane of 2020. If you aren’t familiar with the phenomenon, here’s a primer: Because we’re so starved for entertainment, Hollywood assumes we’re in a position to pay money to watch a bunch of stars do a dramatic reading of a movie script over video conference. Thus, we round up a motley crew of bored talent, either from the original work or fresher faces — usually playing against type — to engage in a Zoom re-enactment of a film you used to love. Except without the picture. Or the music. Or the special effects. The hook is supposed to be a demonstration of Tinseltown bonhomie, a reminder that we’re all in this together.
