"Lethal Weapon" (1987)
Then: Mel Gibson, Danny Glover
Now: Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Lopez
Why: Remember when we all liked Mel Gibson? "Lethal Weapon" was one of the roles that drove his stardom into the stratosphere, but it's easy to overlook what a challenge Riggs was as a character -- a suicidal, violent, but sad-for-a-reason (isn't it always thus?) cop. "Lethal Weapon" had a shockingly decent amount of characterization for an action movie, and an actress like Lawrence would be able to deliver the jokes as well as the pathos. While Lopez has been sitting behind the table at "American Idol," it's a shame she hasn't pushed that torturous gig aside for a real job – forget "Gigli" and "Monster-in-Law" and remember "Out of Sight." She can act, and if she can handle playing a character feeling her age, like Murtaugh, it could be awesome.
