Underworld - Speedman Auditioned For Robin

UNDERWORLD star SCOTT SPEEDMAN once auditioned for the role of the ROBIN in 1995's BATMAN FOREVER.
The actor reveals a girlfriend dared him to try out for the role, and although it was a disaster it gave the former champion swimmer a love for the acting process.
He tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "I was dating this girl and she dared me to audition for Batman Forever. That's sort of how I got started. They were doing a big casting thing in North America and the casting director was in town so I did an audition for her and she got me an agent which started me.
"I auditioned for Robin. I was 18 at the time, which was the right age but I wanted to get out of my house so I was willing to do anything! If you go back and look at the tapes I'm sure it wasn't the best performance of all time. I was barely stringing two words together at that time acting-wise."
Speedman didn't land the role. It went to Chris O'Donnell, who played the Caped Crusader's sidekick in two movies.
