If you've never heard these very funny outtakes of Orson Welles reading the voiceovers for frozen food commercial, you should have a listen. It's good to know that even trained voice actors sometimes have trouble with their readings.

"This is a very wearying one; it's unpleasant to read. Unrewarding."

Welles gets pretty rude to the director and the blasts the writers so if you're easily offended, better give it a pass.

Wow. That was pretty funny... but what a jerk... (sorry, Mr. Welles! But when you're the actor, you're supposed to let the directors direct you!)

Don't worry, Catharine! Old Orson's been dead for over twenty years and won't be offended!!

I have to say that was hilarious but it had to have mostly been tongue-in-cheek on his part!! I doubt he was really angry, seemed more bemused than anything. How the mighty had fallen!!

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: (I give this 4 laughing heads!)
