20 Movie Auditions For Famous Roles You Need To See

16 September 2014 4:01 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

YouTube

When it comes to the really iconic characters in film history, we tend to get tremendously attached to the actors that play them. We assign ownership to these characters, and kind of forget that they didn’t always belong to the actors that brought them to life. Luke Skywalker wasn’t always Mark Hamill, and Indiana Jones wasn’t always Harrison Ford. Once upon a time, these parts were up for grabs, and these actors had to audition for them just like everybody else, competing with hundreds of other hopefuls. It’s amazing to sit down and watch the auditions that landed them these fantastic roles, which effectively changed the course of their careers.

But equally interesting are the auditions of actors who, for whatever reason, didn’t get the part, but went on to become celebrities for their work on other projects regardless. It’s a classic what if scenario. »

Imprisoned Oleg Sentsov on San Sebastian jury

11 September 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The incarcerated Ukrainian director has been named an honorary jury member at the forthcoming festival.

The San Sebastian Film Festival (Sept 19-27) has unveiled the jury for its 62nd edition, which includes imprisoned Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov.

The director, who has been involved in supporting the Euro Maidan protests in Kiev and has opposed the annexation of Crimea by Russia, was arrested on May 10 by the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (Fsb) in his house in Simferopol and brought to a Moscow prison where he is still detained and awaiting trial for “committing crimes of a terrorist nature”.

In July, the campaign to free the film-maker from detention in Russia was taken to the European Court of Human Rights (Echr). A Moscow court ruled that Sentsov should remain in prison until Oct 11 when a trial is due to be held.
