Tomorrow night, SummerScreen continues with a free screening of Wet Hot American Summer, which is already exciting news on its own. What makes the news suddenly more exciting though, is that director David Wain let the world in on a little secret: he’s gonna be at the movie too, and he’s bringing some pals from the cast as well. Oh and he’s also coming with a sneak peek at the Netflix series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, the prequel series to what is now apparently known as Wet Hot American Summer: Last Day of Camp.
Wain doesn’t mention who from the cast will be there, and in an odd bit of symmetry or embarrassing double booking, some of the cast from the movie is supposed to be at Ask Me Another at SummerStage tomorrow night too. That being said, we’d rule out Paul Rudd showing up, only because we imagine that would set off a riot of people trying to get in to be that much closer to America’s current sweetheart. We mean, look at him ride in to the preview of First Day of Camp on a goddamn motorcycle:
On the other hand, Rudd did show up to a screening at Brooklyn Bridge Park a couple years ago, but that was before he was Marvel’s Paul Rudd. You can always hope, though, we suppose. Doors for the movie, at the McCarren Park ballfields at Bedford Avenue and North 12th Street are at 6pm. And make it your beeswax to actually show up at 6pm, because jokes about you being in your late 20s and showing up places on time aside, this will probably be a popular place to be tomorrow evening. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re gonna go hump the fridge.
