What better way to win the role of Ranger Jones in the Yogi Bear movie than to audition with a bear? That’s exactly what comedian T.J. Miller decided to do after auditioning twice and still feeling like he needed that extra something to rise to the top of the pack. Actually, T.J. made the video with director Jordan Vogt-Roberts as a joke, but it got into the hands of Barry M. Meyer, chairman of Warner Bros., who enjoyed it while most likely chortling loudly through a thick cloud of cigar smoke. I just figure that’s the only way studio moguls watch anything. T.J. will leave for New Zealand tomorrow to begin shooting. Doesn’t leave much time for the method approach to acting… (TheApiary)
