Ben Affleck, Orlando Bloom among 'Red Nose Day' stars

NBC will celebrate Red Nose Day with a three-hour special on May 25 including "Celebrity Ninja Warrior for Red Nose Day", and episode of "Running Wild With Bear Grylls for Red Nose Day" featuring Roberts, and "The Red Nose Day Special".

Get ready to find that love actually is all around us.

A star-studded cast is expected to turn out for the event, including Ben Affleck, Bloom, DJ Khaled and Yvette Nicole Brown, among other. There's a new trailer for the Love Actually sequel, and it's enough to make you burst with joy. Patrick Dempsey will play a new character joining the short film from Love Actually writer/director and Red Nose Day founder Richard Curtis. This time around Andrew Lincoln's character queries Keira Knightley's character about his beard (she isn't a fan). The reunion film will be titled Red Nose Day Actually. "We've been delighted and grateful that so numerous cast are around and able to take part - and it'll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and re-creating their characters 14 years later".

The British have known Red Nose Day-the Comic Relief celebration that supports children's charities worldwide-for 30 years, but USA consumers might not be so familiar. The follow-up first aired in the U.K.in March, timed to the British Red Nose Day telecast. The movie, which reunites key cast members from the original 2003 film, will air on Red Nose Day in May. Throughout the night viewers will be entertained, learn about the programs supported by Red Nose Day that are helping to change the lives of children and have the opportunity to support the charity through calls to donate, making a real difference and keeping kids safe, healthy and educated.
