Sally Hawkins met the fish-man of her dreams
in Guillermo del Toro’s Golden Globe-winning The Shape of Water, but that wasn’t the case in James Corden’s spoof.
The host of The Late Late Show has transformed himself into Pennywise from It, one of Channing Tatum’s Magic Mike dancers, and Mary Poppins. Now he plays Terry, an actual fish that Catfishes a woman named Rachel (Hawkins).
“I’m sorry, it’s just, um, you look nothing like your profile picture,” the actress says when she meets her Tinder date in the parody sketch.
Surprisingly, Rachel sticks it out as she finds Terry to be quite charming — even though the slime from his hands tends to get everywhere. In the end, it’s her that gets rejected when she reveals her abnormal way of eating hamburgers. “Well, this is rich,” she says. “You’re rejecting me? You’re not even wearing any pants.”
