Silverstone is the perfect Cher, but have you ever wondered what a gender-swapped version of the character might look like? W Magazine asked the question in their "Casting Call" video series, which features Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield, Lucas Hedges, and Alden Ehrenreich "auditioning" for the role by reading the debate class speech. (They previously did the same thing with Bradley Cooper, Seth Rogen, Paul Dano, and Jake Gyllenhaal.) The results are pure magic.It's pretty clear from the video who's an actual Clueless fan (hello, Andrew Garfield) and who's never seen it (Adam Driver and Alden Ehrenreich, you're not supposed to pronounce "Haitians" correctly!). But each of them give a pretty solid performance. I'm especially tickled by Adam Driver's intensity, which forces me to imagine Cher as a militant ditz instead of a charming one. I'll never hear "totally buggin'" the same way.If it's been a while since you've seen Clueless, here's the actual scene for some context.In conclusion, it does NOT say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty, and Andrew Garfield is here to prove it.
