Good Day, Mr. Kubrick

Like my friend crapdaddy, this young actor was clasically trained at Juliiard. That's about where the similiarity ends. Watch the most breathtakingly bad audition ever recorded - and yet, without even the slightest hint of humility.

This guy needs a whack with the Mamet Stick.

I don't think it would help. He needs a whack with the humility stick. And then a few more just for good measure.

Consider that he never appears anywhere on IMDB, however. I wonder why???

We'll Always Have Shatner
Him mentioning that he's a Trekkie explained the utter lack of self-awareness for me. I liked how his "Juliard" accent disappeared whenever he got distracted by his monlogue.

I've seen better acting in the Twilight Tenebrous.

Re: We'll Always Have Shatner
But he's the most beautifully trained. The most talented. He likes to think of himself as a young Alec Guinness.

Who could be better than that?

"Beautifully Trained"
I caught that phrase as well. It's now going to stick in my subconscious and take on huge "Friends-level" ironic meaning. ; )

I'd bet serious money that he's a drag queen these days and talks like a proud black woman with his galpals.

Re: PS
I would not take that bet.

Good Lord.

I thought the character was supposed to be elderly.

Not 16.

It's just deliciously awful, isn't it?

Apparently at Julliard, they teach you that A: everyone low income is Southern, and B: shouting = emotion.

Hey - cool!

Thanks for saving me the tuition money to go! :-)

Yeah...somehow Johnny became a 70 year old black woman from Alabama. Beautifully trained, indeed.

Oh..... my god.
I can only take solace in the fact that this cum-guzzling mollusk is probably saying, at this very moment....
"And would you like that Super-Sized?"

Do it for Johnny, man. Do it for Johnny.

I'd love to know whether he 1) really went to Juilliard as a undergraduate and 2) really ever graduated, if that's the standard of his performace.

For the love of Gah, how come there wasn't a casting director to yell "NEXT!" in the middle of this!?!?!?

Christ, that's embarrassing. What the Hell was this jackass thinking?

Thank you for this.

It reminded me why I hate other actors so much.
