Reality Bites redo

Have you heard the news that NBC is developing a 30-minute comedy series based on the cult classic, Reality Bites? Um, yes. I’m excited, too. I remember first seeing this film at a sleep-over party when I was in middle school. Winona Ryder and Ethan Hawke—Troy and Lelaina Pierce—were just so cool. And the soundtrack? In a pre-iTunes world over a decade ago, I raced straight to the mall to buy it and blast tunes like this and this

Now, the big question: Who will play Troy and Lelaina in the re-make? With Ben Stiller signed on to executive produce the new series, and Helen Childress (who wrote the original film) penning the pilot script, I’m sure whoever gets cast will be great—but they have big shoes to fill!
