That three minute audtion is better than most of the crap on TV & in theatres.
Aw, gee. *sniff*
What a cutie! My kids and I just watched ET the other day. It held up pretty well... in parts.
The kid part of me wants to help him hide E.T. and the mom part of me wants to scoop him up and rock him. What a good little actor he was! I think I remember seeing part of Drew Barrymore's screen test and she had to scream and look surprised -- which she did very well. I love that scene in the bedroom when she and E.T. scare each other.
The mugshot of the day detracts from the, um, gravity of his performance.
