Keegan-Michael Key Explains How He Improvised 'Toy Story 4' Song with Jordan Peele!

Keegan-Michael Key paid a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night (June 17) and revealed that he and Jordan Peele “snuck” a song into Toy Story 4.

The 48-year-old actor explained to host Jimmy that he and Peele, who star as new characters Ducky and Bunny, were able to improvise during their scenes in Toy Story 4.

“They let us do a lot of improvisation, which was really lovely because we got to record together,” Keegan said. “In animated movies, very often you’re only recording by yourself and so the fact that we got to interact with each other was really, really helpful.”

“They put a bunch of lyrics down for us one day and said, ‘Once you guys find out that this thing’s gonna happen, we wonder if you could just kind of burst into song.’ And we’re like, ‘Oh yeah, whatever song you want,’” Keegan recalled. “They were like, ‘No, we don’t really have the song. Could you write a song right now?’”

Keegan-Michael Key also revealed the one request he had when he was asked to play a hyena in the live-action The Lion King and the questions he’s not looking forward to on red carpets and press junkets.
