Eat your hearts out, Tom Hanks and (the late) Robert Loggia
Anyone can do “Chopsticks” on a giant floor piano, and several actors have proven they can even nail “Heart & Soul” by dancing on one — but we’ve yet to see TV stars bang out a Justin Bieber tune on the famous FAO Schwartz toy.
Sean Hayes joined James Corden Thursday night to warm up with Hoagy Carmichael’s beloved party ditty “Heart & Soul.” It worked well-enough for the “Late Late Show” crowd, but everyone pined for something more current.
“Do you know Justin Bieber?” Hayes asked his host.
“Do I know him? He drives me to work almost every day,” Corden said, calling back his popular “Carpool Karaoke” segment, in which Bieber has appeared twice.
Hayes, who can actually play piano, and Corden, who cannot, trading turns singing bars of Bieber’s hit “Sorry,” while hopping away at the keys. A true duet came with the chorus, though the “Will & Grace” star was playfully out of breath long before then. (You can watch the video above.)
The enormous musical instrument first gained notoriety in 1988 feature film “Big,” when Tom Hanks and Robert Loggia entertained shoppers at the massive New York City toy store.
