Henry Thomas Really Kicked His 'E.T.' Audition's Ass
Concluding with a Spielbergian "okay, kid, you got the job" for good reason, here's young Henry Thomas's audition for E.T., in which he faces up against a smarmy government agent, cries, and makes everyone else watching it cry, because Henry Thomas was that good at crying. This kid was definitely getting to stop at Dairy Queen whenever he wanted.
And that's still how he auditioned for Gangs of New York. The end.
