Fifteen years have passed since the release of the classic rom-com “The Perfect Man”. I think it’s time Hollywood recreated the film about being courageous and discovering self-love. TPM has always been one of my favorite films since its premiere, and if they were to resurrect it with a brand new cast … the talented stars listed below would be BTSCelebs’ choice.
Jean Hamilton – actress Zoë Kravitz
Besides being born into showbiz (Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz’s daughter), Zoe has proven herself with impressive performances in productions like The Divergent Series. Who wouldn’t want to see her portray a heartbroken mom who unintentionally travels the road that leads to self-love and her soulmate?
Holly Hamilton – actress Quvenzhané Wallis
I loved her realistic portrayal of “Annie” in 2014, and this teen actress deserves another starring role. I can already picture her as the clever daughter determined to change her mom’s romantic fate.
Ben Cooper (aka The Perfect Man) – actor Scott Eastwood
Scott’s mind-blowing performance in The Perfect Wave is more than enough proof that he can excel in a leading role. Since then, Clint Eastwood’s son has continued to build his resume with a variety of mainstream projects as well.

Adam Forrest – actor Noah Centineo
The Internet’s newest boyfriend (thanks “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” fame) is the best person to play Holly’s crush. Noah is great as the boy-next-door with an edge. Even though everyone preferred him in TATBILB, I actually enjoyed his performance in NetFlix’s “The Perfect Date” a little more.
Amy Pearl – actress Sofia Wylie
From “Andi Mack” to High School Musical: The Musical: The Series“, Sofia seems to be quickly rising in the ranks to Disney stardom. After watching her in “HSM” and the YouTube short series “Shook”, she can effortlessly be Holly’s comedic yet caring best friend, Amy.
Dolores – actress and singer Hilary Duff
It’s only right that the original Holly Hamilton score a role in the remake. Dolores’ wise counsel to Jean provided some of the best quotes in the film! Dolores’ number one quote in the original film goes something like this: “How come when it’s a man you’re looking at… you’re blind to his flaws, but when its you… flaws is all you see.” Amazing!
Hopefully, Hollywood will consider bringing “The Perfect Man” back for a new generation.
