Over the last six months Juno and Up in the Air director Jason Reitman has staged live readings of classic films at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The screenplays he has featured so far have featured pretty eclectic performers. Reservoir Dogs was performed by an all-black cast. The Big Lebowski starring Seth Rogen, Christina Hendricks, and Rainn Wilson. The Apartment featured Steve Carell and Natalie Portman (LA) and Paul Rudd and Emma Stone (NY). The Princess Bride with Rudd, Mindy Kaling, Cary Elwes, Nick Kroll, Goran Visjnic, and Bill Fagerbakke. The Breakfast Club featured Jennifer Garner, Aaron Paul, Patton Oswalt, Kaling, James Van Der Beek, and Michael Chiklis. While Shampoo cast Bradley Cooper, Olivia Wilde, and Kate Hudson. A pretty cool series to say the least.

And I don't see any reason to stop. In fact, I'd like to butt in and offer up my recommendations for future readings. You're welcome.

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial

Elliott: Elijah Wood

E.T.: The Rock

Michael: Andy Samberg

Gertie: Drew Barrymore

Elliott's Mom: Julianne Moore

Keys: Dustin Hoffman

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Drew Barrymore nailed it as Gertie in the original film. There's no reason she shouldn't be allowed to take another crack at her best performance. Well, there is and it's that the Fanning Sisters got too f***ing old. Why The Rock you're probably wondering. Two reasons. A) It would be hilarious to see he and Elijah Wood getting drunk together via a psychic link. B) The E.T. puppet probably reeks really bad after all these years.

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb

Dr. Strangelove: Martin Short

Everyone Else: The entire cast of Mad Men.

It has sent spasms of dread up my final column every time I hear rumors of Mike Myers remaking a classic Peter Sellers character. No offense to Myers as he's talented at what he does. But what he does and what Sellers did are very different. I'm just not ready to see a "Birdy Num-Nums" shirt in the Busted Tees store. A comedian who is always overlooked when it comes to outrageously unhinged character work is Martin Short. For my money, he's one of the few who can sell Dr. Strangelove. As for the rest of the cast, just use everyone from Mad Men. It would be highly watchable.

The Cable Guy

Steven: Joseph Gordon-Levitt

The Cable Guy: Jason Segel

Robin: Jane Levy

Not a classic in the classic sense of the word, but more of a cult hit. The extremely underrated The Cable Guy still holds up and would be a fun project for Reitman to revisit with his series. Especially with Jason Segel stalking Joseph Gordon-Levitt (alt: Jesse Eisenberg).

Die Hard

John McClane: Tom Hardy

Hans Gruber: John Malkovich

Holly Gennaro McClane: Rachel McAdams

Sgt. Al Powell: Don Cheadle

Deputy Police Chief Dwayne T. Robinson: Dean Winters

FBI Special Agent Big Johnson: Josh Brolin

Richard Thornburg: Jason Bateman

Ellis: Aziz Ansari

Argyle: Tyler the Creator

It's really hard to mess with this one. First of all, how do you fill Bruce Willis's shoes? Or lack of shoes?? Though I stand by the supporting cast, Tom Hardy is the only actor close enough to playing this role. There really is no replacement for 1980's Bruce Willis.

The Shawshank Redemption

Andy Dufresne: Robert Downey Jr.

Red: Charles S. Dutton

Chief Hadley: Liam Cunningham

Warden Norton: James Cromwell

Again, very hard to top or even compare to the original here. Morgan Freeman gave perhaps his Morgan Freemaniest performance to date when playing the role of Red. I pity any actor who has to follow but Charles S. Dutton has proved he can keep pace.

12 Angry Men

Juror #1: Steve Buscemi

Juror #2: Anton Yelchin

Juror #3: John Turturro

Juror #4: Christopher Meloni

Juror #5: Jeff Goldblum

Juror #6: Terrence Howard

Juror #7: Laurence Fishburne

Juror #8: Kevin Kline

Juror #9: Bill Nighy

Juror #10: J.K. Simmons

Juror #11: Mark Strong

Juror #12: Liev Schreiber

If only Mel Gibson hadn't proved himself too angry. He just missed out on an easy paycheck.

Mean Girls

Cady: Ellen Page

Regina: Blake Lively

Gretchen: Ellie Kemper

Karen: Juno Temple

Aaron: Jorma Taccone

Janis Ian: Michelle Rodriguez

It's worth it for the talent show scene alone.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

John Connor: Jonah Hill

Sarah Connor: Katey Sagal

The Terminator: Will Ferrell

T-1000: Gary Busey

Let's make this happen, Funny or Die.
