Many times, an actor’s make it or break it moment comes not on screen, but in the audition. And even the biggest stars have lost out on some of the biggest roles Hollywood’s had to offer because they just didn’t nail the audition quite the same way someone else did. And auditions aren’t fun for everyone. When I was getting into acting, I was told by a lot of casting directors that I was too short, or too scrawny, or didn’t “have a marketable face for television.” Casting directors can be rough, but it’s their job. They’ve got to find the best of the best.

So, without further ado, here’s 7 great auditions that I’ve nabbed form YouTube, so you don’t have to go out and do all the hard work. Enjoy these actors, many before their prime, at their starting points. »
