Jimmy Kimmel Turns YouTube Videos Into Movies With the Help of A-Listers
"Jimmy Kimmel Live!" was back with its annual "After the Oscars" special on Sunday, March 2. This time, Jimmy Kimmel presented not only one, but four faux movie trailers as he wanted to "adapt popular YouTube videos into big-budget Hollywood movies."
Martin Scorsese introduced the first faux trailer for "Bitman Begins", which was Christopher Nolan-esque take on "Charlie Bit Me". It centered on the rivalry between Chris Hemsworth's character and his brother, played by Chris' real-life brother Liam Hemsworth, which started with a bite. Meryl Streep played the boys' mother and Tom Hanks appeared as a man dressing like a monk.
Next, Morgan Freeman introduced "Sweet Brown", a take on the viral video "Ain't Nobody Got Time for That". Queen Latifah starred as Sweet Brown, Barkhad Abdi appeared as a young Barack Obama, Adam Driver played Steve Jobs, and Matt Damon was featured in "his most important deleted scene yet."
Ben Kingsley, Gary Oldman, Mandy Patinkin, Christoph Waltz, Kevin Spacey and Abbie Cornish took part in "Ameowdeus", a spoof on "Keyboard Cat", introduced by Anjelica Huston. Spacey played the Keyboard Amadeus Cat, with Waltz as his arch nemesis, Hamster on a Piano. Kimmel made a brief appearance as Dramatic Chipmunk.
The last video featured Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Catherine Zeta-Jones in "David After Dentist: Double Rainbow Oh My God", which was described as a "3D musical hallucination". Introduced by Andy Garcia, it's a story of a boy's fantasy as he's on drugs. Seth Rogen also appeared as David's Double-Rainbow superhero, while Samuel L. Jackson played an evil dentist.
Spacey took the spotlight in another funny video which showed him channeling the late Johnny Carson. Wearing a checkered blazer, he played host with Kimmel's quirky magician character as his guest.
