Wait! Am I Brian Atene?

One day in 2006, a video appeared on YouTube featuring a young Julliard thespian named Brian Atene.  It was a copy of his home-made 1985 audition tape for Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket.”  The video immediately went viral.

Within 48 hours, another video surfaced of an older Brian Atene, which was picked up by BoingBoing, Defamer and countless other blogs, and got over 100,000 hits by the end of the week.

Brian - then and now

The original video:

Good Day, Mr. Kubrick

The follow-up:
