You Got The Job: Rare Celebrity Audition Tapes

This video will be (if it isn’t already) all the rage very soon. It features 40 clips of rare celebrity auditions for roles in all of your favorite movies. Some of these actors got the roles and some didn’t. It’s pretty crazy to see some amazing actors lose out on roles and then see Megan Fox appear to flub her lines (I could be wrong on that) yet still get the role. Sunrise, Sunset. Anywho, the auditions include: Martin Freeman and Bennedict Cumberbatch – “Sherlock” Robert Downey JR – “Backdraft” Brad Pitt – “Backdraft” Leonardo DiCaprio – “Outsiders” Lindsay Lohan – “The Parent Trap” Robert de Niro – “Godfather” Alyson Hannigan – “American Pie” Michael Cera – “Superbad” Sophie Turner – “Game of Thrones” Selena Gomez – “Wizards of Waverly Place” Megan Fox – “Transformers” Natalie Portman – “Leon: The Professional” Matthew Fox – “Lost” Ellen Page – “Juno” Russell Brand – “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” Jennifer Connelly – “Blue Heaven” Hugh Laurie – “House M.D” Hugh Jackman – “X-Men” Raven Symone – “The Cosby Show” …

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kirsten Dunst, and Kid from the Nanny on Jeopardy ’97

Here is a clip from way back in 1997 where some fresh faced teenaged actors by the names of Joseph “Joey” Gordon-Levitt, Kirsten Dunst and Benjamin Salisbury (Brighton from the Nanny) took to proving that actors are more than just pretty faces…or in this case, oddly shaped faces that you are somehow strangely attracted to. And let me tell you they do not disappoint by killing it on the first question by simply staring at the board and saying absolutely nothing. Not to be outdone, on the second question, these three genius teen actors had a different approach.

On the third question, young Benjamin “we haven’t seen you in anything since the Nanny, so I hope you saved your money” Salisbury decided he couldn’t stand not talking for more than 30 seconds and guessed that the IRISH band that released their music on …
