Logo TV announced Friday that “Cocktails & Classics,” a new film series hosted by former “Ugly Betty” actor Michael Urie, will debut this Sunday.

Together they will re-watch iconic scenes and reenact their most beloved quotes from classics including “Cabaret,” “Sunset Boulevard” and “Valley of the Dolls.”

The series first screening will be “Steel Magnolias.” In the episode, star Olympia Dukakis and screenwriter Robert Harling share how Meg Ryan, Winona Ryder, Laura Dern and Julianne Moore were all in talks to play the iconic role of Shelby, the part which ultimately went to Julia Roberts.
