In what might be one of our favorite audition stories in “That One Audition” history, actress Jameela Jamil takes us step by step through every honest and hilarious moment leading to her bookig the role of Tahani on NBC’s hit comedy “The Good Place.” From her first ever audition with renowned casting director Allison Jones, to improvising on the fly during her network test, Jameela says that when you live for the funny story, you ultimately can’t lose — no matter the outcome of the audition. Some of her additional credits include “Poker Face,” “Marry Me,” “She-Hulk Attorney at Law,” and “DC League of Super-Pets.” In today’s episode, Jameela shares techniques for staying present in an audition, lessons learned from her co-stars including Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, and the importance of finding reps who support you in the kinds of characters you want to play. Whether it be leading roles, villans, or comedic supporting characters, there truly are no small parts.

These are the unforgettable stories that landed Jameela Jamil right here.
