Actor Danny DeVito (Get Shorty, Taxi, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) will have a role in One Direction’s new music video Steal My Girl. No one knows why exactly, but the boy band did show appreciation of DeVito on set by posing with the 69-year-old’s “trollfoot.” DeVito has been photographing his bare foot in various places and positions and posting them on social media sites as a kind of amateur art project. (Is it a boot-y call?)
The song Steal My Girl is the lead single of 1D’s upcoming album, Four, which will be released on November 17. Here’s the chorus: “Everybody wanna steal my girl / Everybody wanna take her heart away / Couple billion in the whole wide world / Find another one ’cause she belongs to me .” The chorus is followed by a number of na na na nas. Maybe that’s where DeVito will come in. Maybe he’ll lip sync those na nas like his contemporary Chevy Chase did in Paul Simon’s You Can Call Me Al.
