Will Ferrell is Phantom

Has yet another blockbuster movie star taken to the Broadway stages? This clips isn’t long enough to tell, but based on Ferrell’s knowledge of the “Opera,” it seems doubtful.

Monday night, Ferrell appeared on The Late Show with Letterman and broke into song.

My favorite funny man has never convinced me that he is a “serious” actor, but somehow he’s an actor that should be taken seriously. And what is more serious than the Opera?

Phantom of the Opera isn’t an opera– it’s a musical, and an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical to boot. It’s still a bold move for Farrell — who I have never seen break into song — to take on this well-known Broadway show tune.

And what a voice…who knew Ferrell could sing? I will admit that the actor only seems to know the same 10 seconds of “Music of the Night” that plays on every radio station in New York more than twice a day. But Ferrell improvises and includes some unexpected details. Pretty fantastic!
