Though a new iteration of Space Jam featuring Lebron James turned out to be a silly rumor (probably for the best), the “classic” 1996 film has been resurrected in live-read form. A reading of the screenplay recently took place, and the folks at Funny or Die were there to record the entire event. The eclectic group of participants ranged from comedians like Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, and Ben Schwartz to voice talents like Seth Green and Ralph Garman, and even Boy Meets World’s Danielle Fishel was thrown in for good measure. Of course someone had to fill Michael Jordan’s shoes, and who better than Los Angeles Clippers star (and University of Oklahoma alum—Boomer Sooner) Blake Griffin? Additionally, teammate DeAndre Jordan also participated, debuting a mean Charles Barkley impression.
Hit the jump to watch the very funny highlights from the Space Jam live-read event.
