What's the next best thing to being in a Martin Scorsese movie? Pretending to be in a Martin Scorsese movie.

What's the next best thing to being in a Martin Scorsese movie? Pretending to be in a Martin Scorsese movie.

With "Hugo" on its way to theaters next month (and recently being given a surprise screening at the New York Film Festival -- you can read our thoughts here), Harper's Bazaar has put together a nifty little retrospective, contacting a handful of the director's past actors to share their thoughts on working with the helmer and getting some recent collaborators to take on scenes from some of his movies. The snaps sure to get people talking the most are the recreated scenes from "Taxi Driver" with Chloë Moretz taking on the role of the teen hooker made famous by Jodie Foster, and perhaps more startlingly, Keanu Reeves (attempting) to channel Robert De Niro. It's certainly interesting, and kind of creepy as well, though at 14 years old, Moretz is pretty much the same age Foster was when Scorsese's seminal film first hit theaters. But don't worry, as she tells the magazine, "But I haven't seen 'Taxi Driver' yet. My mom won't let me watch it."

Among the other pics: Kate Bosworth takes over for Michelle Pfeiffer in a scene from "The Age of Innocence"; Alessandro Nivola (who appeared in "Love Labor's Lost" pushed by Scorsese stateside) and "Shutter Island" and "Hugo" star Emily Mortimer pair up for "The Aviator"; Michael Pitt, Vincent Piazza and Ben Kingsley recreate "Goodfellas"; Christina Hendricks and Jack Huston dance in "Gangs of New York"; and a pretty much unrecognizable Emily Blunt serves up "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore." Check 'em all out below and see "Hugo" when it hits theaters on November 23rd.
