When a TV show goes off the air, it can be tough for actors to find another solid gig. Just ask Tobias FÃ¼nke, who was pretty blue after Arrested Development got cancelled. In Arrested‘s absence, FÃ¼nke had to turn to low-budget ads like this one.
Never one to roll over and take it, FÃ¼nke decided to take the hard shaft of life into his own hands. He took to the web, posting his audition tapes on his website Insert Me Anywhere in a plea to work with Avatar director James Cameron – even though he’s never seen the film, nor has he seen Titanic, or any of the Terminator series for that matter.
The series has gone viral, and you can catch FÃ¼nke’s audition reels plastered across the Internet.
Here are some of our favourites:
Men In Black III
Daft Punk’s Get Lucky
The Capcom World
Taking out Friday the 13th‘s Jason
You can catch Tobias FÃ¼nke in his greatest role when Arrested Development returns next Sunday, May 26 exclusively on Netflix.
