Pete Davidson Is Starring in a New Version of 'It's a Wonderful Life'
Pete Davidson continues to manifest huge opportunities despite divisive reactions from audiences. Following The King of Staten Island, the tabloid mainstay and Saturday Night Live cast member will now take over James Stewart's George Bailey in a new version of It's a Wonderful Life. Yes, really.

The beloved Christmas classic is being brought back for a new virtual table read, and Davidson has booked the starring role. The event is being presented by Ed Asner, and other key roles will be filled by Maude Apatow, Mia Farrow, Ellie Kemper, Carol Kane, Ed Begley Jr., Diedrich Bader, Bill Pullman, Richard Kind, B.D. Wong and Michael Shannon.

"We are so thrilled to have Pete reenact the role of George in It's a Wonderful Life with his talented wit and clever vocalizations," Matthew Asner, CEO of the Ed Asner Family Center said in a statement. "And we look forward to having Maude join the cast as Violet with her creative flair. Please join us for this once in a lifetime opportunity to snuggle up on your couch and experience this all-star cast virtual table read from the comfort of your own home, while helping to raise money for The Ed Asner Family Center. It will be a very meaningful night!"

The virtual It's a Wonderful Life will take place on December 13. Tickets and more information are available here.
