Jake Gyllenhaal’s fake audition for Clueless was an eye-opening experience for the actor: “What was unfortunate about reading through this for the first time … was that I realized that I talk like this,” he says in a video by W magazine where Gyllenhaal, Seth Rogen, Bradley Cooper, and Paul Dano “try out” for the 1995 cult classic. “Which is a bummer.”
Less of a bummer? How delightful (and admittedly unconvincing) these guys are in their attempts to emulate Cher Horowitz. Rogen is especially energetic, while Dano seems rather underwhelmed by the material.
