Holy Spartacus! The cast of That Thing You Do! reunited for an epic performance at The Roxy Theatre in L.A. on Tuesday, April 25.
The Wonders — Tom Everett Scott (Guy), Johnathon Schaech (Jimmy) and Ethan Embry (T.B. Player) — formally known as The Oneders, jammed out to the pop band’s biggest hit. The trio matched in white button-ups and black ties. Bonus: Guy even rocked his black shades!
“When we reunion, we reunion hard,” Embry, 38, captioned an Instagram pic of his former costars. Sadly, Steve Zahn, who played Lenny, wasn’t in attendance for the big show.
Tom Hanks, who wrote and directed the 1996 musical comedy, also took on the role of music manager Mr. White in the film. Other stars included Liv Tyler (Faye) and then-newcomer Charlize Theron (Tina).
That Thing You Do! is set in the early 1960s and centers on four teens from Erie, Pennsylvania, who go from playing pizza joints to sold-out stadiums. Schaech, 47, opened up about his character’s big ego during a Reddit Q&A in January 2015.
“I think that Liv is so lovable that it made him more of a beast than he was. He was just an artist caught up in what he was doing,” he said, defending Jimmy for being a terrible boyfriend to Faye. “Most people get a kick out of Jimmy. They’re usually very excited because they are a musician and they love that movie and I represent someone from their band. … People look at that film and think I’m like that in real life. I can be very very brooding but also very very sweet.”
