Gary Oldman performed a dramatic reading from R.Kelly’s autobiography Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, dressed in a tux and complete with his British accent.

The dapper actor, who will star in this month’s The Dark Knight Rises, reenacted a conversation between Tupac Shakur — or Pak, as R Kelly refers to him — and Kelly about collaborating on an album.

Watch the video below to see Oldman read such insightful prose as ”Just wanted to holler at you” and ”We’ll just let it do what it do.”

Kelly also recently released a critically-acclaimed album, Write Me Back.
