If somehow you haven't heard of him, or just haven't matched a name to a forehead, prepare to be stunned by the Blitzkrieg of non-talent that you are about to experience.
Every One of His Lines in Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li
Now, I expected Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li to be a good movie. I mean, video games ported to film always turn out well, right?
Klein played the role of the badass cop Charlie Nash, who apparently "loves his job."
Funniest part is his tirade at 0:30, when he puts together the whole story behind the "heads of the ruling crime families of Bangkok, correct? Uh-HUH!"He even gets a little cliche explosion dive at the end.
His Mamma Mia! Audition
After crediting Mandy Moore as "an angel of all angels," Klein proceeds to provide a disclaimer for his voice, and totally butcher his audition song.
You've gotta wonder what his agent was thinking sending him in for a role like this. Obviously Klein's previous work had nothing to do with singing, so why put him in for something that revolves around having a Broadway-quality voice, like Mamma Mia!?
But look on the bright side. If it wasn't for this leaked tape going viral, he'd still just be that dude from American Pie with the forehead.
He went on to star in a Funny or Die parody video of his own audition, to show that he has a sense of humor about the whole thing (and absolutely no comedic talent whatsoever.)This video is the equivalent of accidentally calling your girlfriend fat and then appending your statement with the words "but only in those pants."
His First DUI
Wednesday April 13, 2005
"American Pie actor Chris Klein is facing drunk-driving charges after a February arrest in California", Court TV's The Smoking Gun reports.
"Sheriff's deputies pulled over Klein, 26, on Feb. 5 while he was driving a 2003 BMW along a San Diego County highway. According to the criminal complaint, Klein's blood-alcohol level at the time was more than DOUBLE the legal limit (0.08 percent – please remember this part for when you read item #5.)
"The star was briefly booked into a detention facility (under his full name: Frederick Christopher Klein), where he posed for a mug shot and was fingerprinted. Klein is due to be arraigned later this month on misdemeanor charges, which carry a maximum penalty of six months in jail if convicted."
His Parody Video of His Mamma Mia! Audition
See the video at FunnyOrDie here.
This is really, really sad.
He went on to star in a Funny or Die parody video of his own audition, to show that he has a sense of humor about the whole thing. In the past, whenever an actor makes fun of themselves, it's actually kind of endearing, charming and it really gets their audience back.
Chris Klein's problem? His problem was that he couldn't act.
So what do we get in the end? We get a video of a man who got caught not being able to act, trying to act like he's a bad actor.
His portrayal of himself as a bad actor was even worse acting than the bad acting that got him in trouble in the first place.
This is an example of an actor who has never practiced in front of a mirror and who does not know how to take that (knowing) "isn't this funny?!" smirk off of his face and/or eyes. That's right, he smirks with his eyes.
This video is the equivalent of accidentally calling your girlfriend fat and then appending your statement with the words "but only in those pants."
