On last night’s The Late Late Show, host James Corden proved that he’s the ultimate Beyoncé fan by making two respected actors play a dramatic sketch using only her lyrics as dialogue. He titled it “The Bold and the Lyrical,” and the whole things is pretty darn funny.
“I love to love you baby,” said actor Adam Scott to Meg Ryan, using words from the 2004 cut “Naughty Girl. “Say my name. Say my name,” he added.
Suddenly, Corden entered the room, only to find the Black Mass actor in bed with Ryan after he tried to hide under the sheets. “You acting kind of shady,” said the late night host, quoting Destiny’s Child “Say My Name.” “You ain’t calling me baby. Why the sudden change?”
From there, the two actors used lyrics from other Bey songs including “Baby Boy,” “Crazy in Love” and of course “Single Ladies.” “If you liked it then you should of put a ring on it,” said Ryan, seemingly drawing from her days as a soap opera actress on As the World Turns.
The late night funny man’s admiration for Queen B is certainly no secret based on past interviews, and he recently said that he’s dying to get her on his popular “Carpool Karaoke” segment. “Beyoncé, it would break the Internet,” Corden told GQ last month. “She’s on tour right now. We’re working on it.”
