How does one follow up a Shondaland obstacle course, complete with a water slide fueled by Kerry Washington’s tears?
No sane person would. But Billy Eichner, the mad genius behind Billy on the Street, did, by forcing Oscar winner Julianne Moore to compete with randoms dressed as Spider-Man and Elsa from Frozen for tips in Times Square. Behold, “The Julianne Moore Acting Attack!”
Basically, for any spare change someone could throw her way, Julianne would act for them from one of her movies. Like when she screamed that monologue from Magnolia at these delighted ladies:
If there was an Academy Awards category for best street acting, well:
Still, the best part is when Julianne -- or “Famous woman?” as she’s known to this NYC tourist who clearly doesn’t speak English -- cries on cue and the kind man doesn’t have any idea what to do:
Billy recently revealed to ET that he slide into Julianne's DMs to get her on the show. "She followed me for some reason, we were chatting back and forth on Twitter, and I just DMed her,” he said. “She had literally just won the Oscar [for Still Alice] and I was like, ‘There’s no way you’re going to do this, but we’re about to film Billy on the Street. Would love to have you on the show. I don’t even know if you know what it is, but here you go.’ And she wrote back an hour later and she was like, ‘Yeah, where do we do it? I love it.’”
Now, he calls their time on the street, “A highlight of my life!”
In the same episode, they apparently also play a game called "Hummus or Nipples?” which, we have no idea. But we’ll tune in to see. Billy on the Street airs this Thursday at 10:30 p.m. on truTV.
Now, watch Julianne act out a soap opera scene using only Taylor Swift lyrics:
