Stars gather for Democratic Princess Bride fundraiser

It only took a $ 1 donation to access the stream, but donations averaged $ 27 for the event. Party spokesman Phil Shulman said on Monday he did not know how much in total had been collected.

Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Ben Wikler called it the biggest popular fundraiser the party has ever organized. It comes just four days before a large chunk of the cast of the TV sitcom Parks and Recreation plans to come together for a virtual event to encourage absentee voting in Wisconsin.

Wikler made the case before reading the script on Sunday for Wisconsins’ importance in the election as one of the few swing states. Wikler noted that while polls show Biden to be in the lead, four years ago Trump was also lagging behind and he ended up winning the state by less than 23,000 votes.

The Princess Bride event took place after a Wisconsin Democratic Party staff member approached his childhood friend Cary Elwes, who played the hero Westley in the film, about a reunion.

Director Rob Reiner, who took on the role of the grandfather for the reading, joked Sunday that everyone who weren’t dead jumped at the idea.

This included Robin Wright, Christopher Guest, Chris Sarandon, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, and Carol Kane. They were joined by guest stars including Gad, who took on the role of Fezzik first played by Andre the Giant.

Crystal decorated her back canvas with props from the movie and wore the same hat she wore while playing the character of Miracle Max. Patinkin, who played Inigo Montoya, also had the original sword he used in the film. Others appeared to be broadcasting from their homes.

While there were some technical issues and a delayed start, the cast clearly enjoyed recreating the film, with Wright often laughing out loud at his co-star lines. Shawn, who repeatedly pronounces Inconceivable! throughout the film, faithfully recreated this line and others with flying colors.

The Trumps campaign was not moved by fundraising.

Unlike the movie, we know what inconceivable means, and a victory for Biden in Wisconsin is simply inconceivable, said Trumps spokeswoman Anna Kelly.

Some of the film lines have taken on new meaning amid the coronavirus. Elwes, who wears a mask in the film, is asked why he has his face:

It’s just that they’re awfully comfortable, he says. I think everyone will wear them in the future.
