The pair have been fired from your favorite movies
What might classic films like Gone with the Wind and Pulp Fiction look like with John Krasinski and James Corden in starring roles? Viewers of The Late Late Show found out during the Wednesday episode, as Krasinski and Corden revealed themselves to be Hollywood’s most unlucky acting team.
Set in 2014, the sketch revealed the pair had been cast in a variety of movies, even A Few Good Men, only to be fired for going off script too much.
For instance, during the climatic scene in A Few Good Men, both actors shouted, “You can’t handle the truth,” and other variations, until the moment spiraled out of control; in Gone with the Wind, Krasinski kept embellishing the famous line, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn,” even adding an actual mic drop to the sequence; and on Pulp Fiction, Jules’ famed Ezekiel 25:17 speech turned into an opportunity for each man to recite Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise.”
But why was the video set in 2014? That’s because it ends with Krasinski and Corden on the set of Into the Woods, where things are going well until Krasinski gets replaced by his wife, actress Emily Blunt.
