Gael Garcia Bernal showed off his dancing prowess to James Corden. The two swung their hips to a salsa beat with the Latino actor leading the way.
Latina revealed that Bernal, 37, appeared in one episode of “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on CBS to promote his new movie. Meghan Trainor was also sitting with them during the chat. The two talked about various subjects and the conversation subsequently moved to the music, and then to dance. Bernal shared that he knows how to play a few musical instruments and then revealed that dancing was his strongest approach to music.
“If not, I lose my [Mexican] passport,” Bernal answered when he was asked by Corden whether he was a good salsa dancer.
Shortly, the host and Trainor requested Bernal to prove his mettle, to which the actor obliged. The pair danced the salsa, with Bernal as the lead, despite being the smaller guy. At one point, the actor dipped Corden, which made the audience go wild.
Bernal appeared on the “Late Late Show” before he won his first Golden Globe for “Mozart in the Jungle,” by playing the lead role as a musical conductor. Broadway World cited that the actor and singer have been collecting several awards and acclaims in his previous projects. Bernal is also a Tony Award-winning Broadway performer. He won the BAFTA while starring in a UK TV series. The feature film actor also has two movies that will come out in 2016. Bernal is known for his various talents, which also include writing, hosting and producing.
Based on the same Broadway World report, Corden also appeared in the movie “Into the Woods” in 2014, alongside Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Johnny Depp. He is the host of “A League of Their Own,” a UK comedy game show with a sports theme that garnered a BAFTA Award.
Corden is also a talented actor, writer and producer, having previously worked on “The Wrong Mans,” which earned him the Royal Television Society Award for Comedy Writer of the Year. Corden will next appear in “Esio Trot,” together with Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench. Some of his previous projects include “One Man, Two Guvnors” and “The History Boys.” He is also a Tony Award-winning Broadway performer.
Considering the skills and experience of Bernal and Corden, it is only inevitable that their short salsa dance number would leave fans flushed and asking for more.
