Oscar Isaac, the actor who plays the titular role in the Cohen Brothers' new film Inside Llweyn Davis, appeared on Jimmy Fallon last night. After being handed an acoustic guitar by Fallon, Isaac told the audience, "If it was never new and never gets old, it's a folk song," quoting his character, before playing a folk-version of Katy Perry's "Roar." Fallon was quick to chime in with some real folksy harmonies.
It's no news that Jimmy Fallon is a folk music fan: perhaps you recall his eminent impression of Neil Young singing Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair" from last summer. Bruce Springsteen showed up, disguised as a caricature of himself, in a move that could have been the stuff of a late '60s folk song: "Jimmy Fallon got up and grabbed his guitar off the shelf/and sang the blues alongside the Boss, dressed up as himself."
I don't know about you but after seeing Isaac on Late Night I am more psyched then ever to watch Inside Llweyn Davis, which premiered last week.
