These dudes were celebrating 20 years of Clueless
Bradley Cooper, Seth Rogen, Jake Gyllenhaal and Paul Dano ‘auditioned’ for the part of Cher Horowitz from Clueless in a new video which shows the actors reading from a section of the script.
And although we’re mega-fans of the guys IRL, it’s safe to say some of them are more familiar with the teen-comedy than others, because not everyone totally nailed it…
The video (for W magazine) starts with Jake Gyllenhaal baring his soul before the audition starts by admitting that ‘what was unfortunate about reading through [the script] for the first time was that…I realised that I talk like this, which is a bummer’.
Then it kicks off with Seth Rogan giving it some serious Cher-like intonation in his lines, before cutting to Jake, who actually does sound exactly the same when he’s channelling his inner Ms Horowitz. (Weird).
Next up we have a more subdued Bradley Cooper, who we’re not sure has ever even seen the film judging from the way he reads his section, and then the clip is interspersed with the excellent Paul Dano whose deadpan delivery indicates that he may or may not be a Clueless fan – it’s kind of hard to tell.
The best part of the whole video though? Seth Rogen completely killing it. Oh and Gyllenhaal’s ‘whateverrr’ is pretty good, too.
We give kudos to all the actors for paying homage to the legendary teen idol that is Cher Horowitz as the film celebrated its 20th anniversary last year.
