On Monday, these stars and more will do a live reading of "The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in 10 Acts", a stage production based on the Mueller report.

Several of the actors have experience portraying fictional US presidents, including Louis-Dreyfus in the HBO show Veep, Kline in the 1993 comedy Dave, and Lithgow in a recently canceled Broadway play about Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The star-studded reading harkens back to 2012, when George Clooney and Brad Pitt led a live reading of the court case, Perry v. Schwarzenegger, which challenged the legality of Proposition 8, the ballot measure which banned same-sex marriage in California.

The stream kicks off at 6 p.m.
