James Corden, as the Predator, tells his agent he just isn't feeling creatively fulfilled as "the perfect killing machine" before proving why he is.
The Predator has been doing his hunter/killer thing for decades now, but as we learned in this "Late Late Show" skit, he's just not as fulfilled as he used to be.
It's not easy being "the perfect killing machine" when you just want to be loved. The bit features "The Predator" co-stars Keegan-Michael Key and Olivia Munn talking up their former co-star, even if he did some annoying things on the set.
"I mean, I do feel bad for him," Munn said. "I mean, he's great to work with, he's got a lot of talent for sure. I guess if I had one complaint, it's just that he is always doing these 'Austin Powers' impressions. It's like, that movie's like 20 years old."
"I understand where he's coming from, I really do" Key said of Howard's -- the Predator's real name -- desire to branch out creatively. "But, you know, he's got it extra hard because of, you know. All this shit here. You know, whatever-- the mandibles. Is that what they're called, mandibles?"
Those mandibles were in full display on James Corden's ridiculously intricate costume, which was made only more ridiculous when he donned a tuxedo to go and audition for the role of a lifetime as the next James Bond. Unfortunately, that didn't go nearly as well as he'd hoped.
Filmed documentary style, we got a glimpse of what he had to do to make ends meet, and it definitely went even worse than that audition. Anyone who knows anything about Hollywood stereotypes knows he was working as a water, but what happens when a customer is rude to a Predator? Er, sorry, a Howard?
The sketch is absolutely ridiculous and over-the-top, but it still had us laughing. And we found ourselves so invested in Howard's Hollywood trials and tribulations that we're unreasonably angry at Matt LeBlanc now, too. Check out the video to find out why.
