Poor Edward Norton. All the dude wants to do is promote “Motherless Brooklyn,” and he’s got all these late-night funnymen trying to force him into their “Fight Club” spoofs.
On Tuesday, “Late Late Show” personality James Corden got his turn. And he took his shot, including wearing the incredibly late-’90s clothing Brad Pitt donned in the 1999 flick.
“The first and second rule of ‘Late Late Show Fight Club’ is I am not doing ‘Late Late Show Fight Club,'” Norton tells the CBS host after Corden drags him into a warehouse full of not-so-ready-to-rumble staffers.
“What’s the problem?” Corden asks.
“I don’t know, maybe it’s because that film came out 20 years ago,” Norton responds. “I think we’ve absorbed that there’s better ways of expressing our masculinity.”
Yeah, he sounds a little scared to us too, James.
In an attempt to goad Norton into hitting him as hard as he can, Corden began made fun of his movies, punning the titles for “The Incredible Hulk,” “American History X” and “Birdman.”
Norton laid him out after that last one, becoming an instant-hero to the “Late Late Show” workers.
Watch the video above.
“Motherless Brooklyn,” which Norton created, directed and stars in, comes out on Friday.
