Joseph Gordon-Levitt channels Axl Rose for Jimmy Fallon [Video]
If Joseph Gordon-Levitt ever wanted to pull a Gwyneth Paltrow and explore his musical side through his film work, consider the groundwork laid.
When Levitt stopped by Jimmy Fallon's late-night couch Tuesday to talk up his new cancer comedy, "50/50," Jimbo let a secret slip: In the drunken karaoke environment, Levitt nails the vocal stylings of rocker Axl Rose.
The proof in the video below, where Levitt interprets Miss Kelly Clarkson's classic "Since U Been Gone," Axl-style -- and does a really decent job of hitting those complaint notes.
The movie "50/50" sees Levitt as a young man diagnosed with cancer, given down-the-middle odds of survival. The film, inspired by a true story, costars Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard and Anjelica Houston.
Fallon, it would happen, is no stranger to making his thespian guests sing for their sit-down -- including Paltrow, for their famous fictional band Shazzazz.
