A 'Good Place' Reunion! Kristen Bell and Ted Danson 'Zoom Bomb' Biden Campaign Volunteers

The actors recently surprised a group of Biden phone-bankers

Kristen Bell and Ted Danson had a mini-The Good Place reunion when they joined forces to surprise volunteers phone-banking as part of Joe Biden's presidential campaign.

The actors "Zoom-bombed" the Biden supporters, who were in the midst of hosting a weekly Women for Biden phone bank on a recent Sunday.

"Before we dive into phone-banking tonight, it looks like a couple people have their cameras off," says a volunteer at the start of the newly released video, in which six other phone-bankers can be seen calling in remotely.

"Eleanor, Michael — could you, maybe, turn your cameras on?" the volunteer asks, playfully using the names of the actors' characters from their NBC sitcom.

To the surprise and delight of the group, the two turn their cameras on to reveal their true identities: Bell and Danson.

"We're so excited to be here," Danson says. "I've done this phone bank-calling and to me, it's one of the scariest things in the world. So, I cannot appreciate enough the fact that you're here, doing that."

"I've only done the postcards, I haven't done the phone bank yet. I just want to say I'm so grateful to each and every one of you," Bell echoes.

"As a millennial — cause I'm 21," she jokes, "I get it. Like, I get it, you guys."

Danson's wife, actress Mary Steenburgen, can also be seen in the video, sitting next to Danson in their kitchen while wearing a "VOTE" shirt.

Discussing the reasons she's supporting Biden's campaign, Bell quips that it all boiled down to one thing: the famous aviators.

"For me, it's his sunglass game," Bell says, to laughs from the volunteers and Danson. "There's just no one who does it better ... his sunglass game is hot.

"Kamala's sneaker game is unmatched," a volunteer says, referring to Biden's running mate.

Others responded with more poignant answers, with one volunteer saying she was voting for Biden because of her mom, who had recently left an abusive marriage and was in need of healthcare.

"You guys are the most powerful group out there, to be honest" Biden told the volunteers. "And I think you're going to make all the changes."

"Thank you for the inspiration you've given us," said Danson.

The video is part of a new YouTube series by the campaign, in which actors surprise virtual phone bank meetings, to speak with volunteers and thank them for their hard work.

The videos feature Bradley Whitford and Richcard Shiff from The West Wing — joined volunteers in St. Croix County, Wisconsin — and Star Wars' Mark Hamill, who surprised volunteers in Central and South East Ohio.

Bell has been vocal about political issues in the run-up to the Nov. 3 election, recently appearing alongside Miley Cyrus and other celebrities to honor the legacy of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Danson and Steenburgen have also been politically active and appeared at the 2016 Democratic National Convention to endorse then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
