Watch it here:
Earlier this week on OWN’s the Gayle King Show, golden-voiced legend James Earl Jones (of Star Wars and CNN) recited the lyrics of Justin Bieber’s “Baby”.
It didn’t take long for Lucas-heads to developed a video to go with it.
This soon-to-be Bieber classic was given such raw emotion by Jones, that it immediately brings to mind other recent renditions of modern classics. Remember when Josh Groban sung Kanye West’s tweets in his flawless tenor? Or how about Christopher Walken bedazzled the world with his reading of Lady Gaga’s beloved “Poker Face”?
Shatner… the ball is in your court now.
Jones and Law are nominated for best actor for their roles in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Hamlet, respectively. Pirates of the Caribbean‘s Knightley is being considered for her supporting role in The Misanthrope.
James Earl Jones will receive a lifetime achievement award from the Screen Actors Guild.
Alan Rosenberg, president of the American acting union, made the announcement yesterday.
“It is our honour to bestow the guild’s highest tribute on this extraordinary actor,” said Rosenberg. “The actor’s lengthy career commands our admiration and respect.
“His long and quiet devotion to advancing literacy, the arts and humanities on a national and local scale deserves our appreciation,” he added.
The 77-year-old actor, who used to stutter until high school, has worked both on stage and screen. He is also known for his voiceover work as Darth Vader in the Star Wars films and Mufasa in The Lion King.
Jones will take the award at the 14th annual SAG gala on Jan. 25.
