Rogen and his 'Bad Neighbours 2' co-star Rose Byrne joined the chat show host for the sketch
James Corden has sought the help of Seth Rogen for the latest sketch in his ‘Crosswalk the Musical’ series, performing renditions of songs from The Lion King at a crosswalk in Los Angeles.
Rogen, who appeared in the sketch for Corden’s US talk show The Late Late Show alongside his Bad Neighbours 2 co-star Rose Bryne, stars as himself in the bit being harangued by Corden, who plays the role of an exuberant and over-the-top director of a pop-up musical theatre company. The clip follows the Bad Neighbours acting duo’s differing experiences rehearsing and then performing a host of songs from the famous musical at a Hollywood traffic crossing.
The “cast” ran through a selection of numbers from The Lion King, including ‘Hakuna Matata’ and ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’, with Rogen being overlooked for a singing part by a scathing Corden. Watch the full clip below:
This is the third sketch of the ‘Crosswalk the Musical’ series, which has already seen the 37-year-old host performing numbers from Grease and The Phantom of the Opera at crossing points in the Californian city, much to the bemusement of passing motorists.
Bad Neighbours 2, which is titled ‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’ in the US, was released in the UK on May 5. The film is currently in its first week of release in the US.
