Recasting The Characters Of Pretty Woman (If It Was Made Today)
Pretty Woman is a famous romantic comedy film, which was released in 1990 and directed by Garry Marshall. The film stars Richard Gere and Julia Roberts in the lead roles playing the characters of Edward Lewis and Vivian Ward, respectively. The story of the film revolves around a wealthy businessman Edward Lewis, who hires Vivian Ward to be his escort for various social and business functions. The film also shows their relationship over the course of Vivian’s long stay with Edward. Apart from leading actors, there are several other actors who have performed brilliantly in the film. But, if Pretty Woman was to be made today, who would be cast in the same roles? In this article, we have discussed some of the best actors who have enough potential to replace the original cast of the film Pretty Woman, if it has to be made today.
Happy Man – Kevin Hart
The character of Happy Man in the 1990’s film Pretty Woman is played by Abdul Salaam El Razzac. He has been credited as “Happy Man” in both the starting and end of the film. Viewers of this film cannot imagine a remake without the iconic Happy Man in it. Kevin Hart is one of the best actors who would be perfect for the role of Happy Man. He is a talented actor and has the potential to turn the iconic dialogues into a long comedic speech.
Elizabeth Stuckey – Rachelle Lefevre
The famous Hollywood actress Amy Yasbeck portrays the character of Elizabeth Stuckey as the wife of Phillip in the film Pretty Woman. Elizabeth has been shown as a very mean and snobby woman who is all about power and money, just like her husband. Rachelle Lefevre portrayed the character of Victoria in the Twilight film series, and she has also been shown mean material just like Elizabeth in Pretty Woman. In this way, Rachelle is the perfect actress to play the role of Elizabeth Stuckey in the 2020 version of Pretty Woman if it happens.
David Morse – Jack Quaid
One of the most popular Hollywood actors, Alex Hyde-White, plays the role of David Morse in the film Pretty Woman who is the grandson of the business tycoon James Morse and being groomed to take control of the company in his hands. He is a well-mannered and amiable man who is also very kind to Vivian. After considering the stunning performance of Jack Quaid as Hughie Campbell in the film The Boys, we can say that it would be a great choice to cast Jack in the place of David in the latest version of Pretty Woman.
Edward Lewis – Josh Duhamel
The character of Edward Lewis is portrayed by the famous actor Richard Gere in the film Pretty Woman as a wealthy businessman and a playboy from New York City. In the film, he is both classy and humorous. He has been changed a lot throughout the film because of Vivian. We have seen him changing from an unsmiling and serious businessman to a more generous and caring person in both his personal and professional life. Josh Duhamel is one of the best Hollywood actors in today’s date who has the ability to perform both the professional and comedic roles perfectly. Josh has already played the role of a professional businessman in the TV show Las Vegas and comedic roles in the films When in Rome and Life as We Know It.
