The group will add commentary to the special, which will air one week before the election between former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.
‘It’s on – a Superbad Reunion & Watch Party to benefit @WisDems in the homestretch!’ Hill first tweeted to his 4.5 million followers on Friday. ‘RSVP and join us on Tuesday, Oct 27! #SuperbadWatchParty.’
Wisconsin Democrats, in promoting the benefit, explained their sense of urgency to finish strong after the critical swing state went to Trump in 2016.

Emma’s last major role was in last year’s horror–comedy Zombieland: Double Tap, a sequel to the 2009 original that also featured return performances from Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson.
The year before, she earned her third Oscar nomination for the dark historical comedy The Favourite, in which she starred opposite Rachel Weisz and Olivia Colman as a down-on-her-luck noblewoman who tries to ingratiate herself with Queen Anne, who has been overcome by multiple physical and psychological maladies.

Although the pandemic has let much of Hollywood at a stand-still, Emma has already finished recording her dialogue for the animated sequel The Croods: A New Age, which includes Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds and Leslie Mann among its all-star voice cast.
The actress’ next live-action film is expected to be Disney’s Cruella, a prequel to 101 Dalmatians, in which she stars as a younger version of the villain, Cruella de Vil.
Principal photography has already been completed, but the movie isn’t expected to be released until May of next year.
She’s also rumored to be playing the silent film icon Clara Bow in La La Land director Damien Chazelle’s upcoming film Babylon.
Man and wife: Emma and her fiancé Dave McCary are reportedly now man and wife. She married the 35-year-old Saturday Night Live segment director recently, according to a report from PageSix in September
Last month, Page Six reported that the Amazing Spider-Man star and her fiancé Dave McCary had wed recently.
A source told the site that she and the 35-year-old Saturday Night Live segment director had ‘definitely’ tied the knot.
This comes after the power couple were seen wearing matching gold wedding bands on their ring fingers earlier in September.
Rumors: In May rumors first flew that Stone had secretly gotten married to McCary when she sported a wedding band during a YouTube appearance with Reese Witherspoon; seen in 2019
They announced their engagement last December with a sweet social media post, as Stone showed off her stunning diamond and pearl ring.
The duo were set to wed in March, but had to postpone the ceremony due to COVID-19.
But in May, Stone had swapped out her engagement ring for a simple gold band, leading to speculation that she and McCary had secretly tied the knot.

Emma met the former segment director on Saturday Night Live back in 2016, when she hosted the late-night sketch show.
A source told People in December that they work well together.
‘She is professional in every way, very talented and focused on her work, and Dave respects that,’ an insider told the site.
‘He totally supports her, and is unselfish in his desire for her success. Those are great qualities in a man for someone like Emma. She is impressed by his talent and respects him immensely.’
