Samantha Bee will go to any length to score a role in “Cats”.
The star-studded movie adaptation of the classic Broadway musical boasts an all-star cast: Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Rebel Wilson, Jason Derulo, Ian McKellen, and Judi Dench.
Bee presented her audition reel in a new “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” segment. “I’ll pee in a box. I will barf on your wooden kitchen spoons,” she said in Wednesday’s cold open. “I only seem to remember my name 40 per cent of the time.”
“I’m a mezzo-soprano,” she exclaimed. “Thirty years of dance training… Not what they teach you in schools.”
“There are so many horrors in this world, it makes you ask, ‘What is important?’” she says. “And the answer is, a movie about a bunch of trash cats competing for who gets to die.”
The “Cats” live-action musical premieres December 20.
