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” …

Arrested Development is Back. Was It A Huge Mistake?

. As anyone with even a REMOTE sense of anything SIMILAR to humour knows, Arrested Development was brought back from the dead by Netflix and 15 new episodes were unleashed simultaneously on May 26 for viewers to enjoy. Many fans – myself included – eagerly awaited the new episodes (dubbed season 4 but not really a season, more like just content to delve in to). It was known that due to the busy schedules of all the original actors, not every character could appear in every episode.

What follows is an excellent interview with Hurwitz where he explains in detail the process of creating the new installment of Arrested Development. I …
