  • *Select ONE section of dialogue from the options.
  • *You need to say that section of dialogue in THREE DIFFERENT VOICES – you can do different accents (British, Spanish, Australian, Irish, other accents of your choosing), different character types (elderly, absent-minded, jock, other character or personality types of your choosing), or a mix of both. 
  • *No matter what type you choose, the line should be delivered very dramatically, with an expressive face! 
  • *On the video, make sure we can see your face, say the type of voice you are doing, and then do the line of dialogue in that type of voice.
  • Dialogue sections to choose from are below.

Audition Dialogue Sections
*choose one*

Indiana Jones talking about Marcus Brody

He’s got a two day head start on you, which is more than he needs. Brody’s got friends in every town and village from here to the Sudan, he speaks a dozen languages, knows every local custom, he’ll blend in, disappear, you’ll never see him again. With any luck, he’s got the grail already.

Inspector Clouseau 

Now then, what do we know? One, that Professor Fassbinder and his daughter have been kidnapped. Two, that someone has kidnapped them. Three, that my hand is on fire.

Villain Monologue

“I can’t help what I do! I can’t help it, I can’t…I can’t help myself! It’s there all the time, driving me out to wander the streets, following me, silently, but I can feel it there. It’s me, pursuing myself! I want to escape, to escape from myself! But it’s impossible. 

Sam Spade, detective

When a man’s partner is killed, he’s supposed to do something about it. And it happens we’re in the detective business. Well, when one of your organization gets killed, it’s—it’s bad business to let the killer get away with it, bad all around, bad for every detective everywhere.

Jason Bourne 

Who has a safety deposit box full of money and six passports and a gun? Who has a bank account number in their hip? I come in here, and the first thing I’m doing is I’m catching the sightlines and looking for an exit.


Jason Bourne

I can tell you the license plate numbers of all six cars outside. I can tell you that our waitress is left-handed and the guy sitting up at the counter weighs two hundred fifteen pounds and knows how to handle himself. I know the best place to look for a gun is the cab of the gray truck outside, and at this altitude, I can run flat out for a half mile before my hands start shaking. Now why would I know that? How can I know that and not know who I am?

Mission Impossible 

Good morning, Mr. Hunt. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to [insert ridiculously difficult mission here]. As always, should you or any member of your IM Force be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds.” Cue Mission Impossible’s music.

Syndrome from Incredibles

​​See? Now you respect me, because I’m a threat. That’s the way it works. Turns out there are lots of people, whole countries, that want respect, and will pay through the nose to get it. How do you think I got rich? I invented weapons, and now I have a weapon that only I can defeat, and when I unleash it . . .(evil laugh)


I’m supposed to do everything for the colony. And what about my needs? What about me? I mean, I’ve gotta believe there’s somewhere out there that’s better than this. Otherwise I will just curl up in a larval position and weep that the whole system makes me feel insignificant.
