When I find an actor that I like, I love to find out little tidbits of information about their life before they were famous. One of the coolest things to come across is actor audition tapes for the roles that would go on to make their career. Here are 11 audition tapes I was able to find from big Hollywood names. Enjoy!

Blake Lively-Gossip Girl

Gabourey Sidibe- Precious

Steve Carell-Anchorman

Chris Colfer- Glee

Rachel McAdams-The Notebook

Seth Rogen-Freaks & Geeks

Alyson Hannigan-American Pie

Russell Brand-Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Miley Cyrus-Hannah Montana

Lea Michelle-Glee

Graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill. She's one of those people who loves school (or is afraid of the real world) so, she's getting her MFA in Screenwriting from the University of Southern California. If she's not writing, then she's writing. Or if she's really not writing, she's watching Netflix (aren't we all?).
