Auditions by famous actors are always interesting to watch. Many people want to see how the actor portrays themselves and if they can live up to the hype. In Shakespeare's time, plays were performed by professional actors who were hired by the theatre company. These days, many actors start their careers in small towns and cities across the country by auditioning for roles in local productions. However, some famous actors got their start by auditioning for major Broadway or Hollywood productions.

Poor choices, bad luck, and other unfortunate events led to these performers bombing their tryouts and never landing the role.

There are many actors out there who, for one reason or another, have had some pretty disastrous auditions. Some of these actors are quite famous, while others may not be as well-known. But regardless of their level of fame, all of these actors endured an audition that they would likely like to forget. So without further ado, here are some famous actors who had surprisingly disastrous auditions.
