Model Behavior
In the midst of N’SYNC mania (don’t you dare even mention the Backstreet Boys), Justin Timberlake made many young girls’ dreams come true when h starred in Model Behavior. Not only did it feature the biggest heartthrob of the time (though unfortunately he wasn’t sporting the frosted tips) but it involved a scenario usually reserved for Mary Kate and Ashley, in which a normal girl switches lives with a model and gets to date Timberlake. Kathie Lee Gifford also appears, pretty randomly, as the model’s mother. A sequel would only work if Timberlake came back, especially since he went from boy band cutie to legitimate superstar. Since Kathie Lee is busy drinking with Hoda, maybe Kelly Ripa can take her place. As for the girls who switch places, Lindsay Lohan has some experience in that area and her recent attempt at a comeback wasn’t exactly a success.

The most disappointing thing about O’Grady was that, even when it was on television, few people recognized it as worthwhile. I was able to talk about O’Grady with only a handful of my closest friends (perhaps because we shared similar taste, or perhaps because I would IM them on AIM and tell them to “GO WATCH O’GRADY!!!!!” before putting a quote from the show as my Away Message), but it wasn’t exactly what everyone in school was talking about the next day at lunch.

Katniss Everdeen  For starters, Jennifer Lawrence was only 12 in 2002 — luckily, Kristen Bell (who was 22 in ‘02) was still playing teenagers at the time, and would go on to star as a 17-year-old in Veronica Mars not two years later. Despite this casting opportunity that’s obviously amazing in retrospect, at the time audiences barely knew who Bell was, and casting directors would have likely gone with 10 Things I Hate About You star Julia Stiles (a badass in her own right), Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Eliza Dushku or Josie and the Pussycats leading lady Rachael Leigh Cook.Better Now or Then? Our apologies to Dushku fans, but we can’t see anyone but Lawrence in this role at this point.
