I love talking about movies with people, and so a matter that recently came up in discussion was a brainstorm/list of some of the most fucked up movies we’ve ever seen. While many suggested were ones I had seen, one stood out to me as one of those I’d always anticipated to see, but had never gotten around to it: Audition.

Lost

One of the most entertaining things to see when it comes to your favorite movies and TV shows is the audition videos of the cast and maybe even the auditions of famous stars who didn’t get a particular role.

While we don’t have any of those here, we do have plenty of the audition tapes of most of your favorite stars from ABC’s Lost. With the curtain set to fall on the show in just about 24-hours now, what better way to make a weekend of it than by witnessing the very beginnings of these characters and the stars who would play (some of) them. The auditions were commonly used as funny special features on the Lost DVDs, but if you have not seen them yet, now you have your chance.

Be sure to click on over to the other side to check out ten of these audition tapes.
