THR Auditions: Snooki & JWOWW Do 'Laverne & Shirley' (Video)
A modern day Laverne & Shirley? That was the publicity pitch behind MTV’s Jersey Shore spinoff Snooki & JWOWW, which centers on the gal pals’ lives (and growing families) away from Seaside Heights.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWOWW” Farley take on the classic Happy Days spin-off in The Hollywood Reporter’s latest web series, Auditions, recreating a memorable wedding scene. Fitting, considering JWOWW accepted a marriage proposal from beau Roger Mathews during last week’s episode of SnookWOWW.
In the days ahead, THR will debut additional footage of TV stars reading for the parts they wish they’d landed, putting their own spins on The Dark Knight, Green Lantern and that infamous scene from When Harry Met Sally ... Click here to see The Middle’s Eden Sher do her best Clueless impression.
What do you think? Do the Jersey girls do their predecessors justice?
Snooki & JWOWW airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. on MTV.
