By Recalling The ‘Waiting’ Days, Actor Justin Long Heralds His New Collaboration To Help Restaurant Owners/Workers Impacted By Coronavirus Pandemic

Hollywood actor Justin Long announced that he had teamed up with Red Nose Day USA, a non-profit organization, to help restaurant/bar workers who were impacted economically by the coronavirus pandemic

To deliver the news, the actor posted a photo from the 2005 independent comedy-drama film, ‘Waiting,’ that sees the entire cast, including Ryan Reynolds, Anna Faris, David Koechner, Luis Guzmán, Chi McBride, and John Francis Daley, in front of the restaurant called Shenaniganz, and added a lengthy caption.

Long, who portrayed waiter ‘Dean Saunders‘ in the film, written and directed by Rob McKittrick, first wrote that the film was shot at outside of New Orleans in an actual Bennigans that had recently shut down, and continued:

“Most of us were 20-something-year-old actors who’d (almost) all worked in actual restaurants only a few years earlier, so we were familiar with that smell that is totally unique to restaurant kitchens. I think it helped us all feel like we were right back there – it made it easier to bond with each other over this shared “return” to restaurant work/life.”

Stating how much he had really enjoyed working with each member of the cast, Long, turned to nowadays which the coronavirus pandemic is going on, and mentioned the impacts of it on the restaurant workers and owners.

“Over the years, restaurant/bar workers have often said that the movie resonates with them (which is always nice to hear). I know that people in that industry have been especially hard hit by the economic fall-out from covid-19.”

Then the ‘Jay and Silent Bob Reboot‘ actor heralded that in case the people order a @cameo from him, all the proceed would go to Southern Smoke “which provides financial and mental health support to people in the food and beverage industry in need.” He concluded his message as follows:

“I got very lucky when I became an actor but I know if I hadn’t, I’d probably be among them. Thanks also to everyone who supported @rednosedayusa ✌️”
