Eddie Redmayne may be an Oscar winner, but he still has a lot to learn. That is according to his “teacher,” Jimmy Kimmel.
The late night talk show host got a boat full of celebrities, Oscar winners and nominees (Jeff Bridges, Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn, Gary Oldman) to come on and truly own a two-part comedic bit that parodies the institution that is the “serious” acting teacher.
It was sublime and utterly brilliant.
In part one of The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting, he challenges Aniston in what is truly the most inhumane of ways. He also has Matt Damon acting as a chair and as a lamp. See, he’s not ready to play real people yet!
In part two, we learn that assaulting Penn with a pool noodle is “the only way I can learn!”
And Bridges, well, he just said it best. “If I am The Dude, Jim is The Dude behind the Dude, but not in a gay way.” Funny, when we think about those The Big Lebowski quotes, Kimmel is nowhere near our thoughts!
Kimmel continues to impress with that coveted post-Oscar spot. He routinely gets the biggest names in showbiz to come on his show and entertain America by largely making a fool of themselves. And as Kimmel’s acting coach would agree, that’s how you grow.
