Titanic Screen Test Shows Kate Winslet and...Who??

by at . Comments

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.

The Titanic Blu-ray is available now, featuring loads of new special features.

Titanic Quotes

[Rose shows Jack the diamond]
Rose: Jack, I want you to draw me like one of your French girls. Wearing this...
Jack: All right.
Rose: Wearing "only" this.

Well, yes, ma'am, I do... I mean, I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what's gonna happen or, who I'm gonna meet, where I'm gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You don't know what hand you're gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you... to make each day count.

Jack
