Later in the interview, Javier joked that the performance was actually his only musical experience before his role in Being the Ricardos.

“Well, [I’m not musical], apart from coming out of birthday cakes dressed like a Bond girl. I sang ‘Happy Birthday to You’ in my best Marilyn Monroe impersonation. When [the Being the Ricardos team] told me to sing, I was like, ‘Are you sure of that? Are you sure you want me singing?’ And then I try,” Javier shared.

Thankfully, it all worked out in both the film and at the party — and it sounds like another Javier and Daniel birthday bash needs to happen!
