Nothing says sexy like a barbershop quartet. Especially one singing about silk sheets, diamonds, sex by the fire and booty dropping. Now add Tina Fey. Bingo.
The former 30 Rock star dropped by The Tonight Show on Wednesday (May 10) to visit her old Saturday Night Live pal Jimmy Fallon and sit in with his old-timey barbershop crew, The Ragtime Gals, for a spirited, sex-less-on-purpose cover of Bruno Mars‘ “That’s What I Like.”
Fey also gave Jimmy an update on the Mean Girls musical she’s producing, telling him it’s “moving along” and that previews will start later this year after the bound-for-Broadway show gets its act together at a theater three blocks from the White House.
“We’re going to D.C. We’re at the National Theatre,” she revealed. “Previews start on Halloween. It’s so cool. It’s so fun because — you can sing — but I’ve been in stuff that’s like movie musicals, whatever, a little bit. The secret with movie musicals is you can secretly suck and be a star. But to do things on stage? Like, these kids are so talented. We have the cast now. We’ve been rehearsing for about a month. There’s a bunch of baby Timberlakes. Everyone can do everything! They just sing so loud and they dance so hard.”
