Damn: Bruno Mars lyrics are dramatic y’all. On Thursday, James Corden and his late-night guests Kate Beckinsale and Milo Ventimiglia turned the “Uptown Funk” singer’s songs into a soap opera.
On the latest episode of “The Bold and The Lyrical,” Beckinsale is caught in a love triangle between the “Late Late Show” host and the “This Is Us” star. Corden may not have Ventimiglia’s looks, but the “Into the Woods” alum gets — or at least delivers — the best lines in the sketch.
Like, his interpretation of: “Today/ I swear/I’m not doing anything,” is a goodie.
As is this one: “So what?/We get drunk/So what?/We smoke weed.”
Plus, the coup de gras: “That’s ice cold/Michelle Pfeiffer/that white gold.”
Meanwhile, Ventimiglia nearly ruins the whole thing by “accidentally” bringing in Lady Gaga’s “Shallow” lyrics. It’s OK dude, that song has been stuck in our heads since her steamy duet with “A Star Is Born” director Bradley Cooper at the Oscars.
Watch the Corden skit via the video above.
As one might expect, the NBC actor — not the CBS host — gets the girl. Insert your own Pete Davidson joke or meme here if you’d like.
Along with the “W,” Milo gets a plug from us: Ventimiglia’s “This Is Us” airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on NBC.
