Oh, Duckie, we’ve missed you!

Jon Cryer revisited his iconic teen character from 1986’s Pretty in Pink on Tuesday’s Late Late Show.

Wearing a wig on his head and white winklepickers on his feet, the former Two and a Half Men star lip-synched along with host James Corden to Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness.”

It’s been 29 years since the film, which also starred Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Annie Potts, was released, but Cryer, 49, clearly remembered all of his moves from that well-known scene.

“What I liked about Duckie was that he thought he was the coolest guy in the room – regardless of the evidence to the contrary,” Cryer told PEOPLE in 2006.

And while fans might remember the film fondly, Cryer writes in his new memoir, So That Happened, that the movie was originally going to end differently – Duckie was supposed to get the girl.
