Comedian Will Ferrell belts out 'Star Trek' theme

We already knew Ferrell was talented, but who knew he was such a Trekkie?

While appearing this week on late-night talk show, "The Late Late Show with James Corden," comedian and actor Will Ferrell revealed his singing talents after noting that he liked to start his stand-up routine in the geekiest way possible.

When asked if he did much stand-up work in his career, Ferrell quipped, "I tried a little bit; I tried for like a year and a half. I did a lot of 'Star Trek' material."

"In fact, I would start my act by singing the theme to 'Star Trek' from beginning to end," he added.

At Corden's request, Ferrell entertains fellow guest and comedian Kevin Hart, as well as the audience, by singing the "Star Trek" operatic theme song from the original '60s TV show -- and yes, he even hit the high notes.

Logically, we were impressed.
