Darren Julien and Martin Nolan of Julien's Auction House brought a valuable property with them to "Today," where Matt Lauer was bestowed early audition tapes featuring A-list movie stars. Three casting directors have released these 54 tapes to the public, and if you have $2000-$4000 bucks to spare (as Julien estimates the bidding prices), you may need a very good reason to buy a VCR...or a VHS-to-DVD converter.
Included in the tapes are Leonardo DiCaprio auditioning for the TV version of "The Outsiders" in 1991, Gwenyth Paltrow and Helen Hunt trying to nail Laura Dern's role in "Jurassic Park," and Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr. and Keanu Reeves all trying out for William Baldwin's role in 1991's "Backdraft." You can also see a young Nicole Kidman trying out for a movie called "Shattered."
So get your auctioning hand ready if you want a purchase a piece of history — these tapes hit the block on April 5th and 6th.
