Actor Sam Neill is providing all kinds of quarantine entertainment from the safety of his home.
The 72-year-old, who is perhaps best known for playing Dr. Alan Grant in the “Jurassic Park” franchise, put a different spin on a Radiohead classic in one of his most recent social media performances.
Neill stuck an encouraging tone while playing “Creep” on ukulele. He admitted to “butchering” the song after the first verse but we think it was perfect.
“Just to encourage people to stay home and find something creative to do even if it means ruining a Radiohead song,” he explained of his motivation. “I love Radiohead so much and I love that song, and it’s for all the people like me that weren’t in the first 15 and we weren’t in the cheerleader squad. We just wanted to be ‘special.’”
Neill then encouraged fans to keep their heads up during the coronavirus scare and quarantine and urged them to think positively and to look for silver linings.
“I know so many of us are afraid and anxious at the moment but don’t be afraid,” he said. “Don’t be anxious. We’ll get through this thing. We’ll probably be a bit tattered and torn at the end of it but we will get through.”
Neill has also covered Frank Sinatra and Randy Newman on ukulele in recent days. Check his social media feeds for more fun.
Neill will reunite with Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum in “Jurassic World: Dominion,” which is set to be released in 2021.
