“The Late Late Show”


Netflix’s original series “Stranger Things,” the 80s genre homage about the mysterious disappearance of a young boy and the discovery of a telekinetic girl in a small town in Indiana, has captured the hearts and minds of millions. But only one person dares to ask: What if the series was transformed into a Broadway musical? That one person is, of course, ‘Late Late Show’ host James Corden, who’s never afraid to show off his singing chops, like in his recurring segment “Carpool Karaoke.” Last night, Corden enlisted the help of guests Alan Cumming (“The Good Wife”) and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (“Modern Family”) to make “Inappropriate Musicals” of such TV shows “Stranger Things,” “Game of Thrones,” and “Breaking Bad.” Watch the clip from the episode below.

The clip feature original numbers based on the shows. In the “Game of Thrones” segment, Corden, Cumming, and Ferguson all sing the song “Winter is Coming,” a popular motto from the series. For “Breaking Bad,” the three sing “Call Me Heisenberg,” a reference to protagonist Walter White’s alias. Finally, for “Stranger Things,” Corden appears as the Demogorgon and sings an 80s number about wanting to turn Cumming and Ferguson on “like a Christmas tree.”
