Ryan Pugh's TROPIC THUNDER Audition Tape

Yesterday, Every Day Should Be Saturday posted a picture of Auburn lineman Ryan Pugh wearing blackface.  Wanting to give him the benefit the doubt for this big no-no, Spencer suggested maybe it was a TROPIC THUNDER thing.

He was right.

Using our Hollywood connections, the MZone was able to track down Ryan Pugh's until-now lost TROPIC THUNDER audition tape for the role of "Kirk Lazarus," which eventually went to Robert Downey, Jr.  However, after watching the audition below, I think you'll see just how close it was to going to Pugh.

In an effort to get the money before it's all gone, Ryan's dad asks Auburn for $80,000 upfront with the remainder of the $100,000 to be paid in monthly installments.
