Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Munn, and Patton Oswalt were part of an all-star cast that took part in Jason Reitman’s live read of The Big Lebowski on Friday in Montreal.

Fassbender read the part of The Dude (originally played by Jeff Bridges), while Lawrence took on Julianne Moore’s role as Maude. Munn played Bunny, Maude’s stepmother, Mashable reports, while Oswalt was John Goodman’s Walter.

At the event, which was part of the Just For Laughs festival, Fassbender dressed for the occasion — wearing The Dude’s signature bathrobe. He also reportedly smoked cigarettes on stage and drank a cocktail during the reading.

“I think Fassbender went a little too Method on this one. I hope TMZ isn’t here,” Oswalt joked, according to Variety.

You can see some photos from the live read below.
