Ultimate audition: One man plays every character in the history and future of science fiction

Thanks to an emailed link from my friend Don Webb (the Austin-based horror writer, writing teacher, and former High Priest of the Temple of Set), I kicked off my day with the funniest video I’ve seen since Funny or Die’s “Wax On, F*ck Off with Ralph Macchio.” I literally almost did the proverbial coffee spit-take all over my Dell laptop.

The video shows one Jacob Fleischer, who describes himself as “a huge science fiction fan” and “not an actor — professionally,” as he auditions, in just under three minutes, for “every character from every science fiction TV show or movie that has ever been made, or ever will be made.” In the accompanying text description at YouTube, he announces, “I am available to star in any upcoming science fiction blockbusters.”

If I were a producer, I’d hire him right now.

  1. OMG! That is hysterical! your friend really needs to get into the movies or something, he’s good!

    • I actually don’t know Mr. Fleischer; the “friend” I mentioned is Don Webb, whose email directed me to Fleischer’s video. I figure Fleischer must be an amusing man to be around, though. Glad you found the video as funny as I did, Pam. πŸ™‚
