Love Actually’s famous cast shows up in new Red Nose Day reunion trailer

The first trailer for the Love Actually reunion orchestrated for Red Nose Day simply featured Andrew Lincoln recreating his iconic confession of love. The latest brings back a whole host of famous cast members—also wielding poster board—to advertise the charity event and insult Colin Firth. Set to the movie’s theme blaring out of an iPod, the likes of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rowan Atkinson, Keira Knightley, Hugh Grant, and Liam Neeson encourage people to tune in to see what became of the characters they played in the Richard Curtis rom-com, and, per Knightley’s card, which actor has aged best. Cut to Grant, whose sign reads: “It’s not Colin Firth.” Though these digs are both unwarranted and untrue, the light-hearted ribbing is still pretty charming. However, the highlight of the promo, naturally, is Bill Nighy in full Billy Mack regalia.

Red Nose Day Actually debuts May 25 on NBC, though it’s hitting Britain first on March 24.
