Bryan Cranston appeared on the Late Late Show Thursday night to accompany host James Corden and comedian Reggie Watts on a song called “I Can’t Be Your Boy (Cuz I’m a Grown Man).” The trio, decked out in all-white outfits, were billed as the “man band” M3n Not Boyz.
“You [have] your ‘NSYNCs, your New Kids, but eventually, boy bands grow up into man bands, with a whole new set of problems and totally different ways to love you,” said Corden in his introduction to the segment.
As the trio appeared in a cloud of dry ice, a fauxhawked Cranston gave a spoken-word introduction over the song’s slow-jam melody: “Hey girl, I know you’ve been with boys before, but now you’re all done with that,” he said. “You need someone who’s gonna be there for you. Someone who’s gonna stand up for you. Someone who still doesn’t believe in ATMs or emojis. You need a grown man.”
“I’ll rotate your tires while you spin ’round my mind,” sang Cordon, in a white pageboy cap with one pant leg rolled up to the knee. “You’re the best choice that I ever made since the mortgage that I signed.”
Added Watts, “Don’t need a prescription baby, ’cause you’re my little blue pill.”
The three then joined together to belt out the chorus, adding in some lewd choreography for good measure. “I’ll make love to you in my minivan,” they sang. “But I can’t be your boy, because I’m a grown-ass man.”
