I shared a dressing room with Roddy while doing a TV movie called Earth Angel & I’ll never forget his wit, charm & kindness, not to mention his memories of the Golden Age of Hollywood. I will treasure my experience with him forever & am humbled to join the wonderful original cast for this unique event.”

Christopher Sarandon added, “This ‘Fright Night’ table read is, in many ways, a dream come true. While we cast members have remained close friends for years since the original shooting of the movie, the idea of sitting down and re-creating our work on this iconic and enduring work by writer/Director Tom Holland is almost too good to be true.”
