Tyrese Gibson might want to stick to the “fast & furious” lane because slave movies definitely aren’t his speed.
Not that we needed proof of his acting limitations, but World Star Hip Hop unearthed Gibson’s Django Unchained audition video, and it is as painful as you would imagine. Maybe worse.
The Watts, Calif.-born singer/actor/Twitter prophet/relationship expert tries his hand as the lead character, which ended up going to Jamie Foxx. To start, Gibson channels a Southern accent that falls somewhere between a slave master and a cowboy, and he basically goes down hill from there.
For whatever reason, the casting director let him go on for almost seven-minutes of treachery, that ends with him nude in a dark room screaming at the top of his lungs.
He could also use some Chapstick, but that’s a side story.
At least it’s funny though.
