Jason Reitman re-staging 'American Beauty' for one night with 'Men, Women & Children' cast

Jason Reitman’s L.A. Live-Read series is kicking off its new season with a cast swap.

Each year, The Young Adult and Up in the Air filmmaker hosts a series of one-night-only live performances of classic movie scripts at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and a new round begins Oct. 17 with Alan Ball’s Oscar-winning screenplay for American Beauty. The readings are like artistic science experiments, following the recipe of a previous film but mixing in new ingredients, so the twist this time is that Reitman has filled the roles with actors from his latest film, Men, Women & Children.

“I had a such a great experience working with the cast that I was looking for any excuse to get them all together again,” Reitman says. “It occurred to me while I was trying to figure out who to put into the American Beauty read that the casts kind of lined up nicely.”

That will bring Adam Sandler to the role of the suburban father in meltdown mode that won Kevin Spacey an Oscar, while Rosemarie DeWitt will take on the part of his perfectionist wife, originally played by Annette Bening in the 1999 Sam Mendes-directed film.
