Alexis Neiers: Emma Watson
Alexis Neiers: Emma Watson
Emma Watson plays Pretty Wild's celeb-obsessed teen criminal Alexis Neiers in The Bling Ring. Inspired by Watson's fabulous turn as Nicki (the character based on Neiers), here are our choices for who should play other famous reality stars in movies.

Heidi Montag: Elisha Cuthbert
Heidi Montag: Elisha Cuthbert
Even though she’s from Canada, Cuthbert has the perfect California look to play The Hills star... pre-plastic surgery, of course. She's also got the comedic talent needed to pull off such a large a histrionic character.

Omarosa: Kerry Washington
Omarosa: Kerry Washington
Washington is used to taking charge in her role on Scandal, so she’ll have no problem ruling the boardroom as The Apprentice’s Omarosa.

Jamie Hyneman: Nick Offerman
Jamie Hyneman: Nick Offerman
The mustache is key, but Offerman also has the gruff yet gentle demeanor of our favorite Mythbuster.

Khloé Kardashian: Maya Rudolph
Khloé Kardashian: Maya Rudolph
Any movie about the Kardashian clan is bound to be over-the-top hilarious. Rudolph would definitely bring the laughs (and the height) as the youngest Kardashian sister.

Christian Siriano: Bill Hader
Christian Siriano: Bill Hader
Hader was fabulous as Stefon on SNL, so we’d love to see him channel the fierce Project Runway designer.

Snooki: Mila Kunis
Snooki: Mila Kunis
Kunis has already had fun playing the Jersey Shore guidette on The Late Late Show, so we’d love for her to get her GTL on again.
MTV; CBS
Sanjaya: Dev Patel
Sanjaya: Dev Patel
The Newsroom cutie has the boyish charm to play the infamous American Idol contestant. We don’t know if he can sing — but then again, neither could Sanjaya.

Bethenny Frankel: Katie Holmes
Bethenny Frankel: Katie Holmes
Both Holmes and the Real Housewife have been through some divorce drama lately as well as taken some flack for their skeletal frames.

Hanks might not share Hatch's experience with tax evasion, but he has already played a survivor in the movie Cast Away.
CBS; 20th Century Fox
Kate Gosselin: Kate McKinnon
Kate Gosselin: Kate McKinnon
McKinnon has already spoofed Long Island Medium on SNL, so who better to take on the former TLC star?

Si Robertson: Sir Ian McKellen
Si Robertson: Sir Ian McKellen
We know McKellen can rock a beard, and how hilarious would it be to hear him speak with the hillbilly accent of Duck Dynasty's Uncle Si?
Discovery Channel; New Line Productions
Honey Boo Boo Child: Ursula Parker
Honey Boo Boo Child: Ursula Parker
We’re not sure if a dolla makes her holla, but this child actress who plays Louis C.K.’s daughter on Louie would make an adorable beauty pageant queen.

Bear Grylls: Arthur Darvill
Bear Grylls: Arthur Darvill
With a tan and some dirt on his face, we could totally see the former Doctor Who companion as the Man Vs. Wild adventurer. He even has the British accent!

Jenelle Evans: Jennifer Lawrence
Jenelle Evans: Jennifer Lawrence
J-Law is such a good actress, we bet she could turn Jenelle’s Teen Mom troubles into a tear-jerker.

Ryan Lochte: Liam Hemsworth

Gorgeous blue eyes. Chiseled face. Hot body. Jeah!
