With musical-to-movie adaptations popping up all over the place, have you ever wondered how your favorite movies would play out as re-edited musicals? James Corden is here to show you just how some classics would turn out had they included a couple of tunes.
Casting Martin Short and Will Arnett in his new project Wednesday, The Late Late Show host turned Goodfellas, The Revenant and Gladiator into hilarious, upbeat musicals that you would definitely want to sing along to if you knew the words. In the musical adaptation of the mobster drama, Short, nicknamed Tommy, cracked a couple of jokes that led Corden to tell him, "You're a funny guy."
That didn't sit well with Short, and it led him to launch into a dramatic song-interrogation combination.
"You think I'm funny how?" an offended Short croons. "Am I a clown to you?
The two exchanged in a heated back and forth (in song, of course) before Short finally relented and admitted he was just joking. "Get out of here, Tommy!" Corden said, laughing.
"Fuhgeddaboudit," Short responded.
Next up was the The Revenant. You might remember Leonardo DiCarpio's Oscar-winning role as an incredibly dramatic, hard-hitting one, but Corden and Short made it a bit happier—even the legendary bear fight.
"Bear fight, bear fight, putting me to the test," Short sang. "Bear fight, bear fight, tearing into my chest."
