Ben Kingsley

Last week we posted and ridiculed the unsolicited video audition that reality television star Heidi Montag recorded for Michael Bay in an attempt to become Megan Fox‘s replacement in Transformers 3. We joked that Montag would have probably had better luck modeling some skimpy clothes or, gasp, reading from a sample page of script sides, instead of firing guns and running around. If you haven’t yet watched that video, please watch it now before continuing…

On the other hand, Sir Ben Kingsley has stepped up to show how it should be done by a serious actor and thespian. Kingsley recorded and submitted his own video audition for Michael Bay, vying for the role vacated by Megan Fox. Please, don’t let anyone tell him that Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has already signed on for the part. Watch Kingsley’s audition video, embedded after the jump.

Heidi Montag

Last week Megan Fox left Transformers 3 and it now appears that Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is Michael Bay‘s top choice as Fox’s successor.

Heidi Montag, star of the MTV reality series The Hills, has recorded a video audition for Michael Bay, which she has posted online. Montag does have some acting credits on her resume: appearing as herself on an episode of the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother in January 2009, and a cameo role in the Adam Sandler comedy Just Go with It.

Something tells me that how an actress looks firing a gun plays very little in Bay’s casting decisions. Montag probably would have had better luck modeling some skimpy clothes or, gasp, reading from a sample page of script sides.
