Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Appears In Awkward Audition Tape


Robert Kraft, the well-respected owner of the New England Patriots is about to see to see some of that well-deserved respect to dwindle just a bit.

A video of Kraft has surfaced online today that shows the 71 year-old billionaire assisting a woman named Ricki Lander in what would appear to be an audition. Lander is clad in a bikini and it seems as though she is going out for the role of an exotic dancer.

For some reason Kraft is in the video reading lines with Lander. They are in front of a green screen so it is difficult to tell if this is the actual audition or just a really fancy rehearsal. As an actor myself I can tell you it isn’t very often you find yourself in a situation where you can bring your friends to the audition to read with you.Then again, I don’t have any billionaire friends, though I am accepting applications.

Anyway, after watching this laugh-riot, you’ll be wondering why any aspiring actor would want to bring Robert Kraft along to an audition. It’s awkward, hilarious and filled with some downright horrendous acting. It also features Kraft telling a man to “nut up.” Near the end, however, is where the real money shot comes. (No, not that kind of money shot, thank God…).

There is some strong language so fair warning. This video isn’t really appropriate for kids.

It isn’t Chiefs related but hey, it’s July on a football blog. I’d like to thank Kraft for doing whatever the hell it is he’s doing here.
