- Okay, I'm gonna start this up.
And,
just have you, slate, say your name, please.
- Are you kidding?
You want me to actually say my name?
You wrote the role for me, honey.
I'm your wife.
- Just slate your name to this camera, please.
- And you're serious.
- Ma'am.
- Okay.
Hi, I'm Kristen Bell.
- Great.
The character of Karen and John are married,
so they have a certain fam-,
ma'am?
- Yeah.
- They have a certain familiarity.
- Right, act like your wife?
- That's great.
- I think I can do it.
- That's exactly what we're looking for.
- And...
Action.
- Sorry, I didn't know what you were doing.
You were doing like a thing with your--
- I was trying to be respectful, but...
- By not saying, "Action?"
- Action!
- What are you wearing?
- That's great.

- Did I not get the part?
- She's not afraid of all things foreign.
- Because you told me you wrote the part for me,
but if you didn't, that's fine.
Just be honest and say, "I wanna review other actresses."

- Mike, I know who you are.
We're friends, what are you doing?
- Would you wanna read with her?
- Yeah, I'll read.
- Okay, great.
Great, so let's,
you would be more comfortable if we started with a slate?
- Please.
- They already know who,
the slate is for the purposes
of identifying the actor
in the video.
- Let's get one--
- I already said my name.
- Just one clean slate.
- Just a good slate.
Like a good slate.
- Good, solid slate.
Here we go.
- Kristin Bell.
Still reading for Karen.
- Great first take, but,
I think you could be a little warmer.
- Without the resentment.
- Action, slate.
- Kristin Bell reading for the part of Karen.
- Can you do something different with your hands?
- Kristin Bell reading for the part of Karen.
- No,
oh, that's okay if you were doing a comedy.
- We're kind of playing this one straight.
- Hi, I'm Kristin Bell reading for the part of,
this is so stupid.
- No, that was too much,
that was too much.
- Oh.
- You know what?
- Uh huh.
- I don't like the two of you.
I don't like what's happening.
I don't like what's developing,
and I don't wanna be a part of it.
Okay?
(slams script)
- I think we just found our girl.
- I think that was pretty amazing.
- We just found our girl.
- Holy--
- What was her name?
- Check the slate.
- Okay.
- Kiersten Bell.
Great.
- Wow.
- Write that down.
