The Late Late Show with James Corden has brought Kanye drama to new heights with The Bold and the Lyrical, a soap opera made entirely of Kanye West lyrics.

It's a strong enough idea on its own, made all the more potent by the top-tier actors present. In addition to The Late Late Show's James Corden and Reggie Watts, bringing Kanye's lyrics to life are Emmy winner Bryan Cranston, Newport Beach Film Festival award winner Jessica Biel, and Teen Choice Award nominee Giovanni Ribisi.

The wedding scene makes for plenty of clever implementations of 'Ye-isms (Corden helping Biel off the platform with "get down girl, go 'head, get down), and the acting chops present really show how powerful Kanye's lyrics can be. We'll never be able to hear the line "how could you be so heartless" again without envisioning Cranston's delivery.

It's a funny four minutes that we hope brings us that much closer to the inevitable Kanye: The Musical on Broadway.
