CHEERS to unexpected talents.

CHEERS to unexpected talents. Recently two celebrities turned up on talk shows armed with more than the usual idle chitchat. On The Rosie O'Don-nell Show, Lucy Lawless, the strapping star of Xena: Warrior Princess, brought down the house with a ringing rendition of "I'm an Old Cowhand (from the Rio Grande)." Just the previous day, acrobatic martial-arts star Jackie Chan ("Super-cop") unexpectedly tore into a heartfelt version of Elvis's "Can't Help Falling in Love" during an appearance on Fox After Breakfast. In his vibrant tangerine-colored suit, Chan looked like the King of Karaoke. Given the physical nature of Chan and Lawless's work, it strikes us that maybe there's a correlation between action stars and singing. OK, Arnold, start practicing your scales.
