For today's Comic Relief's "Red Nose Day" in the U.K., "Love, Actually" director Richard Curtis (who's also the co-founder of Comic Relief and has co-produced the event for the BBC since 1988) has reunited some of the cast members of his famous 2003 movie for a mini "sequel."

To tease it, Comic Relief yesterday released a video that's quickly gone viral, in which the actors hold up cue cards in the style of Andrew Lincoln's character in the original film, when he declares his love for Keira Knightley.

In the teaser, actors including Knightley, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Hugh Grant, Rowan Atkinson, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Andrew Lincoln hold up the cards, with Knightley inviting viewers to tune in to find out "which one of us has aged best." They then debate that, with Hugh Grant's card reading "It's not Colin Firth." Liam Neeson jokes: "I think it's obviously Liam," -- and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who played Neeson's son in the film, holds up a sign reading, "Whatever I've grown up."

It's all set to music from the original movie. We can't wait to tune in and find out the answer -- tonight on BBC1 in the U.K., and on May 25 on NBC in the U.S. (if you can wait that long.)
