Now, there’s probably no movie we’ve written about more on BuzzFeed mean Girls, And, I mean, can you blame us? Nearly 20 years later, the film is still an absolute classic and has stood the test of time.
That’s why I have to say that I’m really, really excited about the upcoming film adaptation. Mean Girls: The Musical.
And so far, original cast members Tina Fey and Tim Meadows have been confirmed to reprise their roles as Ms. Norbury and Principal Duvall. But there has been little involvement of the rest of the OG cast – just speculation and rumours.
But over the weekend, Jonathan Bennett (aka Aaron Samuels) attended the 34th GLAAD Media Awards in New York, where he was asked by people if he was involved in the upcoming film.
Jonathan replied teasingly, “There’s been some talk going on about some things. Let’s just say it.”
He continued to talk about how much the 2004 film meant to him, saying, “It was a lot of fun to be a part of a film. like mean girls, where so many people have such a great response and it’s a heartwarming feeling when they think about our film, because it changed their lives in so many ways. It changed my life.”
Jonathan continued to praise mean Girls for being ahead of his time by opening the discussion about high school bullying: “In many ways, I think mean Girls is the first film that really showed what bullying was and brought it to light. But they used comedy with amazing writing from Tina Fey to be able to talk about it. And I think it was an important film for many reasons, but also for shining a light on bullying.”
Sadly, he didn’t comment on whether or not he felt his hair was pushed back. You can read the full interview with Jonathan on People.
