Matthew Lillard (Scooby Doo, SLC Punk), Janina Gavankar (Star Wars: Battlefront II), WWE’s Alexa Bliss, and Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) are just a few of the names confirmed thus far for the upcoming digital event. Some pretty big personalities are in this lineup as they preview the most recent Dungeons &  Dragons storyline in an effort to raise money for Red Nose Day to help children that have been negatively impacted by the continued spread of COVID-19.

  • Comedians like Thomas Middleditch, Brian Posehn, and Kevin Sussman will be on the livestream to try to solve some problems or fail hilariously while trying.
  • WWE Superstars Alexa Bliss, Tyler Breeze, Dio Maddin, Ember Moon, and Xavier Woods will go toe-to-toe against Jeremy Crawford, the Principal Rules Designer for D&D.
  • Deborah Ann Woll will lead a group of actors—including Amy Acker, Janina Gavankar, and Matthew Lillard, and Sam Richardson—will work together for a world-building exercise. 
  • Principal D&D writer Chris Perkins takes players new to D&D—including Felicia Day, Brett Gelman, David Harbour, Brandon Routh, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, and Martin Starr—to help dispel some misconceptions about this particular tabletop journey to help other new players get caught up!
