Watch ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ Actor Ansel Elgort Tap Dance With Jimmy Fallon [VIDEO]
Surprise! Not only is ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ heartthrob Ansel Egort an insanely adorable and talented actor, he can also tap dance pretty darn well, showing off his moves on ‘The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon‘ last night, June 2.
Egort revealed his tap dancing past when the host asked him if he always wanted to be an actor.
“I started in ballet a little bit,” the blond cutie told Fallon. “And I wasn’t very good to be honest.”
He then picked up tap dancing, which is something that he quickly fell in love with.
“I got more into tap-dance because my dad took me to see Savion Glover at the Joyce Theater. I love Savion. I can tap dance a little bit,” the 20-year-old actor explained, and immediately Fallon asked him to show off some moves. “But the thing about the tap-dancing is I always got stuck,” Egort said. “I got so obsessed with tap-dancing.”
And we can see why, as he clicked his heels on the floor and tapped his way into our hearts. Aw! And of course, Fallon — who praised the actor and told him he should tap in his next movie — had to show off his own “skills,” hilariously shuffling his way across the floor, which had Egort (and the audience) in stitches.
