We’re totally buggin’ over this video. While Alicia Silverstone was the ultimate Cher, Seth Rogen, Jake Gyllenhaal, Bradley Cooper and Paul Dano could have totally stepped in.
Let’s start out by saying that we would never recast Clueless, since the casting was pretty much on point — no one could rock an Alaia dress like Alicia Silverstone. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t want to watch some of the most funny and attractive men in Hollywood read the script from the 1995 film. In a new video from W magazine, Seth Rogen, Jake Gyllenhaal, Bradley Cooper and Paul Dano all put their own spin on Cher during a mock “audition” tape.
“I’d like to preface this by saying that what was unfortunate about reading through this for the first time — and I would just also like to say that I just got this — is that I realized that I talk like this, which is a bummer,” Jake tells the camera in the video. With that, he began reading lines from the scene where Cher compared the Haitian immigration crisis to her dad’s fancy garden party. Naturally.
The other guys join in, including Seth saying the line, “I was totally buggin’.” Basically, these four could totally remake this and we’d all line up to watch. Don’t even say you wouldn’t!
We do have to point out that Bradley correctly pronounces “Haitians,” something that Cher actually didn’t. We later found out that that was actually a mistake that Alicia Silverstone had made during filming, director Amy Heckerling decided to keep it in — which we totally loved.
Alright HollywoodLifers, who else makes the best Cher?
