The cast ofDazed and Confused is reuniting for a good cause. The stars of the cult classic comedy came together for a table read on Sunday to raise money for initiatives aimed at increasing voter turn out in Texas.

Matthew McConaughey turned out for the virtual event, and reunited with many of his original co-stars, including Rory Cochrane, Parker Posey, Adam Goldberg, Anthony Rapp and Joey Lauren Adams -- as well as director Richard Linklater.

Several excited celebs also signed on to fill in for different characters, including Eiza Gonzalez, Ricky Whittle, Ashton Kutcher, Zachary Levi and Jensen Ackles.

The virtual event was a throwback celebration of the beloved coming-of-age comedy, and fans gleefully embraced the reunion on Twitter.

ET's Nischelle Turner spoke with Adams on Monday, and the actress opened up about how the virtual table read actually felt like a high school reunion, "In all the great ways, and all the awkward and weird ways."

"It was a really interesting experience," added Adams, who played Simone Kerr in the film.

"I've always felt like it's a blessing and a curse to be in a movie that's such a cult classic. Because I don't watch my own work," Adams shared of the film. "So I almost wish I hadn't been in the movie, 'cause I would be one of the people who would watch the movie a hundred times."

Adams also recalled her experience working with Ben Affleck, who played a sadistic, antagonistic bully named Fred O'Bannion in one of the actor's first major film roles.

"He was so like kind of shy and kind of quiet," Adams remembered. "I don't think I had any scenes with him. I didn't see what he was doing with his character... [so] then when I saw the movie, it really took me a while to be like, 'Oh, that's the same guy!'"

Unfortunately, Affleck was unable to make it for the table read, so Kutcher stepped in for the role, and brought a lot of manic, excited energy to the event.

The fun reunion raised money for the March for Science organization and Voto Latino, which is looking to promote voter turnout in Texas during the presidential election on Nov. 3.
