Video: Jared Leto Auditions for Kurt Cobain Biopic

Tuesday was the 17th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death, and to commemorate the date, Jared Leto decided to post an audition tape a video of himself impersonating the idol.

I heard today was the day Kurt passed away 17 years ago. Can’t believe it’s been that long," he wrote on his blog. "So grateful for his contribution and inspiration. Not sure I’d be doing this if it weren’t for him. He gave us all permission to create no matter what our skill set and reminded me that dreams are possible. Thanks for that."

Jared claims to have made the tape to "celebrate" Kurt's life, but it seems more like an audition for a part in the upcoming Kurt Cobain biopic. He reallllly got into character for this one.

He added, "This made me recall a short piece of film I shot when I heard they were making a film celebrating his life. I made it to explore the character and explore creative possibilities. I never sent it to the studio or to anyone but thought I’d share it now…"
