Michael Shannon, two-time Academy Award nominee and occasional internet meme, has given us yet another reminder of the singular quality that makes him Michael Shannon. The “Nocturnal Animals” actor (who received an Oscar nomination for his role) was on “The Tonight Show” last night, treating host Jimmy Fallon and everyone in attendance with a rendition of Sting’s “Russians.” Watch below.

Perhaps coincidentally, Sting was also in attendance at the Oscars a few nights ago, where he was nominated for his song “The Empty Chair.” Shannon’s impromptu performance was preceded by some of Shannon’s trademark humor — asked about his hobbies, the two-time Oscar nominee professes an affinity for taxidermy and skeeball. “I like a challenge,” Shannon said before belting the tune.
