Jon Cryer is Duckie again, reenacting famous 'Pretty in Pink' dance with James Corden

Posted on


49-year-old Jon Cryer certainly isn’t showing his age. The actor stopped by The Late Late Show Tuesday night, joining host James Corden in a mustard-colored sports coat, a wig (so maybe he’s showing a little age), and matching white winklepickers to pay homage to Cryer’s 1986 Pretty in Pink role. Cryer and Corden then reenacted Duckie’s famous record store dance scene.

Molly Ringwald wasn’t there to complete the picture—but between Cryer and Corden’s impassioned lip syncing of Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness” and their seriously light footwork, she was barely missed.
