James Corden paid homage to Bring It On, Varsity Blues and more
If you’ve ever fantasized about James Corden wearing nothing but a whipped cream bikini, you’re in luck.
For the Late Late Show‘s post-Super Bowl episode Sunday night, the host got actors Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick and Adam DeVine to help him recreate the best cinematic tributes to athleticism in a skit called “History of Sports Movies in 7 Minutes” – including Ali Larter‘s sweet seduction scene from 1999’s Varsity Blues.
“Uh … we cut this bit,” Efron, 28, said as Corden, 37, sauntered in front of the green screen in a blonde wig (and not much else).
“Right. It’s still a treat for the ladies, isn’t it?” the star teased as the audience laughed.
The montage also included lines from Bad News Bears, Field of Dreams, The Sandlot, Bend It Like Beckham, Bring It On, The Karate Kid, Hoosiers, Space Jam, Raging Bull, Rudy, The Blind Side, Remember the Titans, Any Given Sunday, Chariots of Fire, Seabiscuit, Rocky I, II, III and IV and – for one brief, shining moment – High School Musical.
