For those who don't know, a screen test is a short film shot to test an actor or actress's suitability in a given role. As part of a special feature on the upcoming Titanic Blu-ray re-release, Kate Winslet's screen test has been released, courtesy of Yahoo!. And who's that she's acting with? It's not Leonardo DiCaprio, who had not yet secured the role of Jack, but instead Jeremy Sisto, fresh off his part in Clueless. Check it out:
Winslet obviously landed the role, though her performance is a bit different. Sisto, on the other hand, did not. And it's a shame too, because Winslet and DiCaprio both went on to be pretty giant movie stars (though Sisto has had his fair share of success as well).
DiCaprio will appear as the millionaire Gatsby in next year's Baz Luhrmann adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
