The King of Shock Rock meets one of the many Kings of Comedy! During a recent edition of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the popular late-night host had the beloved star of ‘The Office’ on as his guest. Most recently, Steve Carrell is promoting his latest film entitled: “Minions: The Rise Of Gru”. That particular film hit theaters on July 1st in the United States.
During the show, Fallon brought up a side by side of himself and popular legacy rock star, Alice Cooper. Cooper is also a member of the Johnny Depp supergroup that will be going on tour very soon. When pressed on the alleged resemblance between the two, Carell smiled and went: “I see it!”
The actor continued: “I met Alice Cooper, I waited on him,” he explained. “When I was working in Chicago when I was waiting tables. I was working at a restaurant and he came in and he was Alice Cooper! And couldn’t have been nicer, sweetest guy in the world!” Jimmy also agreed that Alice is “the nicest guy”.
In other news concerning Alice Cooper, during an interview with Esquire, Cooper touched on the success of his mega-hit ‘School’s Out’ which was released in the summer of 1972. Here, Cooper discusses the song’s legacy and how it is supposed to encapsulate the greatest three minutes of your life.
“There are two times during the year,” Cooper said. “One is Christmas morning when you’re just getting ready to open the presents. The greed factor is right there. The other one is the last three minutes of the last day at school. … You’re sitting there, and it’s like a slow fuse burning. I said, ‘If we can catch that three minutes in a song, it’s going to be so big.'”
“When we did ‘School’s Out,’ I knew we had just done the national anthem. I’ve become the Francis Scott Key of the last day of school. “If this isn’t a hit, I might as well start selling shoes.”
hmmm… what do you think? https://t.co/GF4yELfKgo
