Watch Uzo Aduba, Abigail Breslin, and Julia Garner Take On Famous Male Roles in This New Role Reversal Series

Watch Uzo Aduba, Abigail Breslin, and Julia Garner Take On Famous Male Roles in This New Role Reversal Series

There are great scenes, and then there are great scenes — those movie monologues you've learned every word of without even trying. How many of them are things women said on-screen? As female-driven films continue to gain momentum in Hollywood — three out of five of the comedies that scored best picture Golden Globes nominations are top-lined by women — we hope that that number keeps going up.

In the spirit of that goal, we recast three iconic male roles — Brad Pitt in "Fight Club," Daniel Day Lewis in "There Will Be Blood," and Anthony Hopkins in "Silence of the Lambs" — with some of the most captivating actresses working today. Abigail Breslin ("Scream Queens") takes on Pitt's angry idealist ringleader, Julia Garner ("Grandma") drinks your milkshake, and Uzo Aduba ("Orange Is the New Black") is varsity terrifying as Hannibal Lecter. We didn't know this until today, but you haven't lived until you've heard Aduba do the fava beans and chianti bit. It's kind of like being at a party you can't believe you're at. Enjoy:
