Video of the Day: Michael Shannon and Alison Haislip do dramatic readings of a sorority leader’s email
Over the past few years, actor Michael Shannon has seen the critical acclaim for his performances rise sharply, following a career of supporting turns in movies such as Bad Boys II and Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead. One genre the actor has yet to explore since his rise, however, is comedy. However, a new video from Funny or Die proves that Shannon is well aware of how to channel his characteristic intensity to comedic effect as well, as the actor does a dramatic reading of the now-famous sorority email that made its way around the internet last week. The video can be seen below.
As an added bonus, here is Alison Haislip, from the now-cancelled Attack of the Show! and current co-host of the Nerdist webseries 4 points with Alex Albrecht, with her own rendition of the email.[vsw id=”NQB812PtvgE” source=”youtube” width=”640″ height=”425″ autoplay=”no”]
