In the trailer, “Love Actually” cast members hold up cue cards the same way Andrew Lincoln’s character of Mark did in the film. “Tune in to see what happened to everyone, and, amongst other things, which one of us has aged best,” the cue cards read. The actors in the video are Lincoln, Hugh Grant, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightly, Lucia Moniz, Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson, Bill Nighy and Rowan Atkinson.

“Over the years I’ve enjoyed doing Red Nose Day specials of TV things I’ve worked on — ‘Blackadder,’ ‘The Vicar of Dibley’ and ‘Mr Bean,’” “Love Actually” writer-director Richard Curtis previously said in a statement. “It seemed like a fun idea this year to do a special sketch based on one of my films, since Red Nose Day is now in both the U.K. and America.”
