Jessica Lange was on Jimmy King Live yesterday and she told the ABC late night host that before she was an actress she studied Mime in Paris for many years. But then she decided there was not a great future in Mime, so she moved back to The States, studied acting, landed the job in King Kong and the rest is Hollywood History. Can you imagine what American Horror Story: Asylum would be like without her? Imagine her doing Mime in the streets of Paris instead of being held in the giant hand of an ape as he climbed the Empire State Building? I just can’t do it, it’s like am trapped in an imaginary glass box that I can’t get out of no matter how much I try.
Seriously I think that is one of the most fascinating reveals that I have ever heard a celebrity make, so I had to share it with you. I just wish that Kimmel would’ve gotten her to demonstrate some of the moves she learned in the City of Light.
Maybe now that Ryan Murphy knows her secret, he will get her to do something on the FX show? It is plausible that a lounge singer turned Nun would know Mime, right? Or better yet she could appear on Glee as a Mime teacher at NYADA who teaches Rachel the performing art. And for that episode Lea Michele is just seen, but not heard! I am loving that idea, what about you?
