Worst audition tape... EVER! (1983)

Circa 1983, Stanley Kubrick began pre-production work on Full Metal Jacket (1987). At the time, he was looking for some fresh, young faces to star in his Vietnam War drama. After placing an ad in some US Newspaper, Kubrick,s production company were flooded with audition tapes from all over the US. This is one of them... P.S. An excerpt from "The Outsiders" is placed at the end for comparison.

The good news: This babbling fucking retard eventually realized he was shit, and finally figured out the ancient chinese method of suicide...

He would have been good for the Gomer Pyle role.

Surely they could have written him a role as a mouthy one that cops it in a humourous the first few seconds into the battle. He'd do better as a Jerry Lewis impersonator.

He just sucks. Someone shouldve shot and skullfucked him.

The Outsiders was a good damn film. How dare that idiot disgrace it.
Pompous jerk is probably in politics now--like a little John Kerry.

He doesn't have his name on IMDB.com so I guess that the poor thespian is now either working in an office or he's wormfood. I bet stanley Kubrik Had a good good laugh.

He sounded like a black straight out of the plantations,i was waiting for him to say "yes sir yes sir" i'll dance for ye sir" "anything for ma master sir".

Dekor I really doubt that's real. It doesn't look anything like the original guy, and his demolition of R. Lee Ermey's performance in Full Metal Jacket isn't just terrible (like the original video), but it reeks of satire. I dunno, I'll wait until I see it on Snopes.

I heard he quit acting and got into song writing, wrote a song that some black dude with metal teeth made famous called "why must I cry"

@coupland: are you saying R. Lee Ermey's performance was terrible in FMJ? SACRILEGE!!!

^ Not for a second, I'm saying it was outstanding. I'm just saying I don't think the video of the 30-year-old Brian Atene is really him, because even a terrible actor would realize his rendition was an insult to R. Lee Ermey.
