We may only be getting the Dungeons & Dragons movie now, but the game has had a storied history with television from Freaks and Geeks to Community. What’s fun is, Honor Among Thieves is being directed by Freaks and Geeks alum John Francis Daley, and he’s reunited with his co-stars Martin Starr and Samm Levine for a run ad for the D&D film.

If you haven’t checked out Freaks and Geeks, the three are the main trio of the ‘Geek’ part of the show, and in one episode, they have a campaign with ‘Freak’ Daniel Desario (James Franco) who comes up with the character of ‘Carlos the Dwarf’. Here’s the clip:
It’s kind of a bummer that Franco got cancelled, so he couldn’t come to reunite with the three for their D&D session, but I guess it’s fun enough that they got the three Geeks to come back for this short bit. Was it too hard to land a cameo from Linda Cardellini?
The official for Honor Among Thieves reads:
A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves brings the rich world and playful spirit of the legendary roleplaying game to the big screen in a hilarious and action-packed adventure.
Watch out for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves when it hits theaters on March 31.
