“Office Space” Cast Reunion Coming to DC Labor FilmFest 2009
In commemoration of ten years spent skewering cubical culture and ridiculing flair, Mike Judge‘s cult comedy Office Space is getting a special showing at the AFI Silver Theatre and two of the film’s most memorable cast members will be in tow to answer questions about…that damned red stapler?
The special anniversary screening, which concludes this year’s DC Labor FilmFest 2009, will feature appearances from the actors behind Office Space‘s most loathsome archetypes: Stephen Root, who played Milton, Intitech’s lovable, if somewhat disgruntled, cube-farmer (pictured), and Gary Cole, whose character Lumbergh singlehandedly entered the term “Mmmmm, yeah” into the cultural lexicon.
The evening will capped off by a raffle for Office Space’s oh so pivotal device: a red Swingline stapler. The show starts at 7:45 pm on Saturday, October 17th at the AFI Silver Theatre in downtown Silver Spring. Tickets are $12 for the general public and $9 for AFI members.
Meanwhile, all fellow haters of jobs both big and small would do well to check out the rest of the Labor FilmFest’s line-up, which includes classics such as The Grapes of Wrath and the Woody Guthrie biopic Bound for Glory, as well as a host of documentaries, foreign features and old-fashioned American treatises how much working truly does suck (Slap Shot, baby!). The festival runs from October 13th to 19th.
