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.
