Check out Robin Wright auditioning for the role of Jenny from Forest Gump opposite Tom Hanks.

Interestingly enough, Hanks doesn’t quite have Gump’s southern drawl down just yet while the other actors audition with him. In fact, Hanks would base Gump’s voice on the voice of Michael Conner Humphreys, who played the young Forrest and who can also be seen in this audition reel. Also included are Hanna R. Hall, who played the young Jenny, and Haley Joel Osment, who played Forrest’s son.

The 1994 film would go on to win six Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actor in a leading role for Tom Hanks.
