Corey Kluber Auditions for True Detective

In case you missed it, and by the way this thing has caught fire on the internet you probably haven’t, Corey Kluber actually did something besides strike people out and look stoic. Well, he still look stoic, but he did it while auditioning for the role of Rustin Cohle on the hit HBO show “True Detective” (follow that link for a sampling of Rustin Cohle. Caution, may be NSFW).I have absolutely zero doubt that this is real and not a completely hilarious fake casting for the sake of comedy and internet hits…

Ok, so that’s totally what it is, but it doesn’t make it any less awesome. It’s great to see Kluber showing a bit of personality, and by personality I mean playing up his emotionless demeanor for the cameras. It’s probably about as perfect as perfect get for stupid viral videos. It’s also good to see Kluber getting a little bit of exposure on the internet and MLB.com. Maybe this will help make him a household name. You never know.

You can watch the full video of Kluber’s audition below.
