Jason Reitman has really pulled his live reading of The Big Lebowski together: To end his season of staged screenplay readings at LACMA, EW reports that Reitman has recast Seth Rogen as The Dude, Rainn Wilson as Walter, and Christina Hendricks as Maude. Several of the smaller roles will be filled by Hank Azaria, Nick Kroll, and Fred Savage, though Reitman cast his sister Catherine as slutty Bunny, the role originally played by Tara Reid. (Awkward?) Reitman previously tackled scripts from The Princess Bride and The Breakfast Club in the popular series, and he'll put up his newfangled Lebowski tonight. We abide.
