Best Thing on the Internet Today: Tobias Fünke Presents 'Insert Me Anywhere'
Any backend you give him, he's sure he'll enjoy.

 

When a TV show goes off the air, it can be tough for actors to find another solid gig. Just ask Tobias Fünke, who was pretty blue after Arrested Development got cancelled. In Arrested‘s absence, Fünke had to turn to low-budget ads like this one.

Never one to roll over and take it, Fünke 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 Fünke’s audition reels plastered across the Internet.

Here are some of our favourites:

The Shining

Men In Black III

Daft Punk’s Get Lucky

The Capcom World

Taking out Friday the 13th‘s Jason

You can catch Tobias Fünke in his greatest role when Arrested Development returns next Sunday, May 26 exclusively on Netflix.
