The Revenant Reimagined as a Gay-Themed Musical Starring James Corden and Martin Short — Watch

There’s nothing quite as endearing as the love story between a man and a bear.

On The Late Late Show Wednesday, James Corden and Martin Short co-starred in a screen-to-stage adaptation of The Revenant, reimagining the epic brawl between man and beast as a moment of internal struggle when both parties recognize their forbidden desire to be more than just hunter and predator.

So how exactly do they process their taboo attraction? Through song, of course!

Corden’s “Inappropriate Musicals” also takes a stab at adapting fellow Oscar-winning films Goodfellas and Gladiator (the latter of which features a cameo by Arrested Development alum Will Arnett).

    James Corden has the greatest, most creative, twisted staff of writers on the planet! It doesn’t hurt that Mr. Corden is incredibly talented himself and apparently game for anything (no pun intended). The combination of JC and his team makes his show the most refreshing hour on TV.

    ‘Why fight it’ was actually really beautiful :’)

    Time for Martin Short to be back on Broadway singing. I forget how well he can sing.

    Recaps of American Crime Story by James Corden are just hilarious.
    ACS feels like a parody or a spoof now.
    Characters of Sharpio (Travalto), OJ the Juice(Cuba) & Robert Kardashian(David) are just funny & it’s hard to take them seriously.

  5. I need to get my hearing checked, I woke up late last night right in the middle of the song ‘Why fight it’ and I thought they were dressed as animals and were singing “Wild Fa*got. I was going to report the show to GLAAD! thank heavens I heard the wrong song title.
