Could anyone step into Cher Horowitz heels from “Clueless?”

As if!

But, actors Seth Rogen, Jake Gyllenhaal, Bradley Cooper and Paul Dano did spoof a memorable scene from the beloved ’90s movie for W magazine’s Casting Call video series.

Bradley Cooper joined Seth Rogen, Jake Gyllenhaal and Paul Dano for an audition of “Clueless.”

The actors channeled Horowitz played by Alicia Silverstone in the movie in an audition for the film and delivered her iconic speech for debate class.

The actors recited the lines to Cher’s monologue on Haitian immigration, which she famously compared to her father’s garden party.

“If the government could just get into the kitchen and rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians,” Cooper dead-panned in his reenactment.

Rogen, giving a passionate delivery, concluded with: “May I please remind you that it does not say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty.”

The 1995 film, which was a loose adaptation of the novel “Emma,” starred Silverstone, Paul Rudd, the late Brittany Murphy and Stacey Dash who is facing backlash for comments she made amid Oscars backlash, in which she suggested ending Black History Month and awards that celebrate black artists.

“Clueless” was released twenty years ago, starring Alicia Silverstone (L) and  Stacey Dash.

For Gyllenhaal, his transformation into popular girl Horowitz brought a “bummer” of a realization.

“What was unfortunate about reading through this for the first time – and I would also like to say that I just got this – I realized that I talk like this,” he said.
