With an ’80s icon replacing Scarlett Johansson
Spike Jonze‘s “Her” has already gotten lots of attention from critics, but finally got attention from Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday when the late-night host broadcast “an early trailer that leaked online” featuring the original voice of the operating system that Joaquin Phoenix‘s character falls in love with.
Who could writer and director Jonze possibly have wanted for the role before securing Scarlett Johansson‘s sultry, yet sweet voice?
It turns out, “Her” was actually a “Him,” who was cute, cuddly and probably locked away in your attic right now.
Watch the video above to see what vintage voice Kimmel added to elevate the inventive story to a whole new level of weird.
