Sh*t is indeed bananas. It's a pretty good indication of just how big a segment has gotten when you can rope in two Oscar-winning A-listers like Julia Roberts and George Clooney to do about 15 minutes of jokes and songs in the back of a car. But, yeah, on last night’s The Late Late Show, during James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke,” that’s exactly what happened.
By the time Roberts and Clooney showed up, guest Gwen Stefani had already barreled through some of her greatest hits with Corden. It was very impressive and very sweet. But things kicked into another gear when the two started looking for extra passengers so they could use the High Occupancy Vehicle lane. Corden called in Clooney, Clooney called in Roberts, and away they went.
Now, just because Clooney and Roberts have Academy Awards and have both been receivers of People’s Most Beautiful Person award doesn’t mean either of them has the vocal chops to sing along with Freddie Mercury. This here is the video where we learn why the two of them are actors and not rock stars. But passion? Yeah, these two have all the passion you could want.
