Imagine the Godfather shouting "I wish I knew how to quit you!" to Dirty Harry in Brokeback Mountain, or the Divine Miss M whacking James Caan's feet in Misery. Chris Pudlo and Craig Taggart rewrite movie history in Hollywood-Uh, Could-Uh, Should-Uh!, reinterpreting famous film roles as played by other actors: Jack Nicholson and Megan Mullally in Silence of the Lambs, Faye Dunaway in Clueless. As if! Pudlo and Taggart, who both starred in Logo network's short lived Sordid Lives: The Series, have been performing the show since 2010. For its newest incarnation, the two also appear in a video montage taking on even more celebs auditioning for parts made legendary by others. Just try to picture eternal flower child Drew Barrymore as the wire hanger-hating mother in Mommie Dearest, or Crispin Glover descending a grand staircase as an aging silent film star in Sunset Blvd. They're ready for their close-up.
