John Boyega is one “Smooth Criminal.”
The Star Wars actor channeled his inner Michael Jackson on The Tonight Show Wednesday night when he received a surprise video request from his The Last Jedi costar, Daisy Ridley.
“Oh, peanut! Please show Jimmy your breakout dance move at the wrap party,” she said. Apparently, Boyega stole the show during the end-of-production celebration for Star Wars: Episode VIII.
“I’m gonna need some music,” Boyega laughed, turning to The Roots. Though Questlove joked they don’t have the budget to buy the music rights to M.J.’s songs, he laid down a beat for the actor to do his best crotch grab and side kick.
But, of course, we already knew Boyega has moves from his Brandy and Monica spoof with James Corden.
Watch his dance for The Tonight Show in the video above.
