As IF anyone but Alicia Silverstone could ever play Cher Horowitz in "Clueless." The classic '90s comedy, which came out in 1995, recently got the "Casting Call" treatment from W Magazine. Bradley Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal, Seth Rogen, and Paul Dano auditioned for the role of Cher, reading off a real scene from the script.

Jake launched the reading with a moment of sad (and slightly pretentious) self-awareness:


"I'd like to preface this by saying that what was unfortunate about reading through this for the first time -- and I just would also like to say that I just got this -- is that I realized that I talk like this. Which is a bummer."


Way harsh, Tai! Here's the video:




Who would you cast? From here, Seth Rogen did the best job. By reputation, he's the most comedic of the actors, but he did the most earnest reading -- and mostly to the camera, instead of just reading off the script. Paul Dano's deadpan lack of interest might work for a supporting character who kind of mumbles conspiracy theories about Haitians, but it's not quite right for our beloved Cher.
