Watch James Corden, John Krasinski get fired from classic films in late-night sketch


James Corden’s Late Late Show adventures are always wonderfully absurd. The actor was recently almost killed by Matt Damon in a Jason Bourne sketch, and now his show has released a new video in which he and John Krasinski claim that they worked on some of history’s greatest films, only to be fired each time.

Krasinski was on the show to promote The Hollars, an upcoming film he stars in and directed, and he teamed up with Corden on the video. In it, they claim that they’ve been working together for decades and that their underappreciated partnership was once the subject of a 2014 short documentary. They offer up entertaining footage as well, highlighting their ill-fated roles in movies like A Few Good Men, Gone with the Wind, and Pulp Fiction.

The pair explains that their “electric” chemistry comes from having worked together since 1939. Their first film was what Corden calls “a little movie called Gone with the Wind.” The Late Late Show host was set to play Scarlett O’Hara, and the Office alum was meant to fill the role of Rhett Butler. Unfortunately, they couldn’t make it work. After a slap fight and literal mic drop, the producers sent them packing.

We see still more of their double failures, from being unable to deliver a key line in Pulp Fiction without breaking out into Coolio’s Gangsta’s Paradise to going overboard in A Few Good Men. Finally, though, we see success — but only for one of them. The sad end to their partnership apparently came about after Krasinski, who was playing the wife of Corden’s baker in Into the Woods, was replaced by his real-life wife, Emily Blunt.

Corden and Krasinski really do have great chemistry, and it would be great to see a project featuring them both actually be made. In the meantime, The Hollars hits theaters on August 26.
