Carell was on ABC’s Popcorn With Peter Travers to talk about his new film Foxcatcher, but talk eventually turned to how every time Travers and Carell get together, Carell starts singing.
“I just want to know what’s in your head? What’s going on in there?” he asks Carell, who also starred as everybody’s favorite regional manager Michael Scott on The Office.
Carell, comedic genius that his is, doesn’t miss a beat before jumping into Swift’s “Shake It Off” chorus.
“That’s the movie I want to see you do next!” Travers jokes. “Steve Carell and Taylor Swift. … I never understand what we do, but it’s great.”
Maybe Travers is on to something here. After all, Swift has some acting experience with memorable roles in The Giver, Valentine’s Day and The Lorax and has said she would love to do more of it.
