VIDEO: Jimmy Kimmel Turns YouTube Hits Into Star-Studded Movie Trailers
If you wished this year’s Oscar nominees suffered from a severe lack of cats and double rainbows, Jimmy Kimmel has you covered. The late-night host gave YouTube videos the big-screen trailer treatment during his post-Oscars special — with the help of a few friends, of course.
Frank Underwood might be great at playing politicians, but Kevin Spacey was board to play the piano in the trailer for Ameowadeus. The actor took on the iconic role of Keyboard Cat in the fake trailer, starring opposite Christoph Waltz, Ben Kingsley, Gary Oldman and Mandy Patinkin.
Jimmy Kimmel Live spiced up the history books with Sweet Brown: Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That. Queen Latifah stars as the eponymous hero, whose nonchalant philosophy and love of cold pop inspire Barack Obama (Barkhad Abdi) and Steve Jobs (Adam Driver).
