Fans of Judd Apatow who knew his name well before The 40 Year-Old Virgin hit theaters in 2005 should hold onto their hats. Variety is reporting, though unofficially, that a 10-year reunion for the cast of Freaks and Geeks — the coming-of-age high school series that survived only one season from the year 2000 — will be staged for an event at PaleyFest 2011. Apparently Apatow revealed the reunion through his Twitter over the weekend and the Paley Center has since confirmed the fact that a Q&A with the cast and producers is definitely in the cards. The official announcement regarding the TV festival won’t hit until next week, but this sounds like a done deal.
Since many of the series stars like Seth Rogen, Jason Segel and James Franco have since catapulted into stardom this should be quite the reunion. Other cast members include Linda Cardellini, John Francis Daley, Martin Starr, Samm Levine and Busy Phillips, and surely they’ll be along for the reunion too. I’m wondering if they’ll get Shia LaBeouf or Rashida Jones involved since they each had bit parts in a few episodes back in the day. Either way, this will be an event you don’t want to miss, so if you have the means, make sure you make it to PaleyFest 2011.
