The next best thing to watching a complete performance in a finished movie is the very uncompleted, often disheveled audition tape featuring said actor or actress attempting to become the character for the first time in order to land the gig. There's just something about watching old audition tapes that gets the mind buzzing and the nostalgia churning. We especially dig 'em when they feature different actors providing their interpretation of a character they never played.
Check out this fun supercut featuring some of the more popular audition tapes floating around online. You've got everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio auditioning for The Outsiders to Tom Cruise's audition for Risky Business.
