I had no idea that Tyrese Gibson (Transformers) auditioned for Quentin Tarntino's Django Unchained. The part was originally offered to Will Smith, who turned it down. Then Jamie Foxx jumped into the role, and he was perfect. It's really interesting to see Gibson auditioning, but I can see why he didn't get it It's not that he was bad, it's just that he lacked that leading man presence. You'll see when you watch it.
