    Title says it all. Think of a movie or a song, and put into place who you think would be the worst to fill the role. Like for instance, Carol Channing in the title role of "Spartacus". Or Jessica Simpson doing a remake of the single, "Bitch Betta Have My Money".

    One of my sadistic pop culture dreams is to see "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane" redone, line by line and scene by scene with Lindsey Lohan and Paris Hilton as the starring roles. It would be so unbelievably horrible, yet hysterically funny at the same time.

    Perhaps Dave Chappelle playing Sho'nuff in a remake of The Last Dragon? Then again, maybe that should happen?
