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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

McKinnon has already spoofed Long Island Medium on SNL, so who better to take on the former TLC star?

Discovery Channel; New Line Productions
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?

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.

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!

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