The cast of “The Princess Bride” is reuniting for a virtual table read to raise money for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.

The virtual event will take place at 6 p.m. Sept. 13, four days before absentee ballots are scheduled to be sent out across the state.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, the idea came after the former cast of "The West Wing" reunited to promote When We All Vote, the voter registration initiative co-chaired by former first lady Michelle ObamaMichelle LeVaughn Robinson ObamaTo honor Justice Ginsburg's legacy, Biden should consider Michelle Obama National Urban League, BET launch National Black Voter Day The Hill's Morning Report - Sponsored by The Air Line Pilots Association - White House moves closer to Pelosi on virus relief bill MORE


Cary Elwes, who played Westley in the film, is a childhood friend of a staffer of the Wisconsin Democratic Party, according to the Journal. 

Ben Wikler, chair of the Wisconsin Democratic Party, is reportedly a fan of the film, which he quoted during a toast at his sister’s wedding.
