Watch Josh Gad reunite everyone you’d wanna see from THE GOONIES for an online chat session

I suppose one of the better parts of everyone being in quarantine is that celebrities aren’t too busy to say no to doing interviews, and more importantly having reunions online, since no one has to leave the house. We’ve seen some cool things come out of this already, like Pierce Brosnan doing an online live commentary for GOLDENEYE from his home in Hawaii, the Saturday Night Live cast doing shows from their houses, and even the nightly talk show hosts doing live shows from their own homes. But Josh Gad, who already famously got some of the biggest names in Hollywood to troll Daisy Ridley about STAR WARS secrets for online entertainment, has perhaps trumped them all this week. Gad premiered a new online show of sorts called “Reunited Apart”, and his big premiere episode brought back together the entire principal cast of THE GOONIES – Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Corey Feldman, Martha Plimpton, Ke Huy Quan (aka Jonathan Ke Quan), Kerri Green, Robert Davi, and Joe Pantoliano. But that’s not all! He also got director Richard Donner (who is 90!), writer Chris Columbus, and producer Steven Spielberg to join in on the fun, and even brought in Cyndi Lauper… that’s pretty impressive by ANY standard.

I’ve hosted a Q&A a few years back with Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, and Jonathan Ke Quan, and I thought I was doing pretty good with that… guess Gad has now seriously got me beat. Josh also doesn’t miss this golden opportunity to ask ALL of these players if we’ll ever get a sequel, but you might not like the answer. Check out the almost half-hour chat session below.
