Ben Platt Shares Video from His 'West Side Story' Movie Audition

Ben Platt is giving his fans a peek inside the audition process for a movie musical!

The 23-year-old Tony-winning actor just sent in an audition tape to play the role of Tony in the upcoming movie version of West Side Story, set to be directed by Steven Spielberg.

“Actors spend lots of time making tapes that never see the light of day- usually embarrassing, poorly shot ones. This one I liked (it’s still poorly shot) so I’m sharing it- I encourage fellow actors to do the same so long as the material is public stuff 😊,” Ben wrote on Twitter.

In the video, Ben sings the song “Maria.” He previously sang the West Side Story song “Somewhere” during a performance at the Grammys in January.
