urx unit loader Gary Oldman recaps 'Jersey Shore' for 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Gary Oldman was richly deserving of his Oscar nomination for “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” but we’d argue this video from Thursday’s (Feb. 3) “Jimmy Kimmel Live” makes nearly as strong a case for his acting prowess.

Oldman reads a recap of “Jersey Shore” for the “Live” audience and manages to keep a straight face for the entire two minutes or so that he’s on stage. That, ladies and gentlemen, is concentration.

(We should also note that though Oldman has a lovely British accent, hearing the antics of the “JS” crew read by a Brit doesn’t really make them seem more classy.)

Also, you haven’t really lived until you hear Oldman enunciate words like “J-WOWW” and “booger.” We know Oldman’s appearance with Kimmel won’t have any bearing on the Oscar race at all, but we’re kind of rooting for him a little more now.
