Kevin Spacey performed “Talk Dirty” along with Jimmy Fallon on Friday night’s Tonight Show. Spacey joined the four members of the barbershop quartet, Ragtime Gals. Together, the five guys sang an a capella version of Jason Derulo’s hit song, “Talk Dirty.”
According to Huffington Post, Spacey, Fallon, Tom Shillue, A.D. Miles, and Chris Tartaro made serious a capella magic with the song.
And yes, Spacey sings all of the great lyrics including, “first class seat on my lap girl” and “but your booty don’t need explaining.”
While you might think that their rendition of the song is funny — it is — it is also quite good.
Kevin Spacey might not seem like a “Talk Dirty” kind of guy, but he definitely can sing and he has a knack for being funny whilst being serious — not something many people can do. Couple that with a late night show and television genius just happens.
While Jimmy Fallon has performed musical numbers with guests in the past (cough, cough Justin Timberlake), doing something unexpected with the House of Cards actor was a hit and has easily shot to the top of the awesome list. The video is going viral on the web today.
Spacey has had great success in his career which could be one of the reasons he’s getting so much attention for his “Talk Dirty” rendition.
Kevin Spacey has starred in several films, from American Beauty to Horrible Bosses. He has won several awards for his work in film and has been nominated several more times. According to Broadway World, Spacey has also been involved in the production side of things. His company, Trigger Street Productions, is responsible for producing House of Cards, Spacey’s hit Netflix series; he is the executive producer of the show.
Broadway World reports:
“In addition to his roles for the screen, Spacey is a celebrated stage performer and producer. He won a Tony for Lost in Yonkers (1991), and a Tony nomination for The Iceman Cometh (1999), and has been the Artistic Director of The Old Vic Theatre in London since 2004.”
Kevin Spacey wouldn’t “Talk Dirty” if he was asked to host the Oscars, however. As previously reported by Inquisitr.com, Spacey would love to be offered the gig. In a recent interview with the other late night “Jimmy” (Kimmel), Spacey was asked if he’d like to host the Oscars. His response? “I think it would be great fun. I’d love it!”
If Spacey did host The Oscars, perhaps he would open with a musical number. He has pretty much already passed the real test anyway.
