Claire Danes and James Corden Act Out a Katy Perry Lyric Soap Opera
James Corden’s newest installment of The Bold and the Lyrical featured a script of only Katy Perry song lyrics, and, needless to say, things got dramatic fast.
On Tuesday’s The Late Late Show the hilarious soap opera sketch starred Claire Danes, Christine Baranski, and Jack McBrayer and opened with the host getting a rude wake-up call as he finds a cherry-flavor Chapstick and a sleeping Danes next to him in bed.
The Emmy Award-winning actress begins the segment by informing the surprised late-night emcee: “That’s what you get for waking up in Vegas!”
And things quickly take a dramatic turn as the suddenly serious starlet asks, “Did we get hitched last night?” and the pair recount their evening’s escapades filled with plenty of shots, dancing on table tops, skinny dipping in the dark, and a “ménage à trois” with McBrayer, who suddenly pops up from the bed.
Perry’s breakout hit “I Kissed a Girl” makes an impression as McBrayer tells the pair, “I kissed a girl and I liked it,” to which the Homeland star has the perfect comeback.
“California girls, we’re undeniable,” a giggling Danes says.
While the British funnyman tells the star that she “makes him feel like he’s living a teenage dream,” things take an interesting turn as Christine Baranski enters the room and discovers that her husband cheated on her.
