Video: A Canine Actor’s Spectacular Screen Test

Koko is the star of an Australian film called “Red Dog,” which was released last year. (It’s now available in the U.S. on DVD.) But long before the film came out, the studio released Koko’s wonderful screen test, in which he shows off his incredible range as a thespian. The director seems quite impressed, so it’s no wonder that this dog got the lead role in the film.

The movie is based on the legendary true story of the Red Dog who united a disparate local community while roaming the Australian outback in search of his long lost master. It also stars American actor Josh Lucas, who gave a long, interesting interview with on the the “Power of Dogs and Dog Movies.” The trailer for the film is below.
