Today from the annals of the internet: A super scary Gerard Butler trying out for the role of Dracula, in "Dracula 2000," which was released in the year 2000. Looks like the past 12 years have been nice to the actor, no? The film was written and directed by Patrick Lussier and also starred Christopher Plummer, Omar Epps, Collen Fitzpatrick, Jeri Ryan and Jennifer Esposito. They all survived working with Butler.

See a bunch of other early roles and audition tapes in the gallery below. Happy Friday.
