Speaking to indy100, the original poster – actor Charlie Condou – explained why he started the thread.
I’m always fascinated to see who could’ve played famous characters. You can watch screen tests of well-known actors auditioning for big roles. Plus it’s good to see that great actors get turned down too. It ain’t just me!
It’s always devastating missing out on a big part. I’ve been in this business for nearly four decades and it never gets any easier. You just have to keep going.
Condou might not have got the role in The Office but at least we got this glorious thread.
