Police Academy fans were left delighted after one of the film’s famous stars made an appearance on America’s Got Talent last night.
Actor/voice-trumentalist Michael Winslow, 62, became a household name in the 1908s after starring in the popular film and TV franchise as Larvell Jones.
However, he stepped away from Hollywood in 1993 in order to focus on raising his children after the death of his first wife.
Tuesday’s episode of the NBC reality competition show saw him make a triumphant return to the stage as he delighted judges Simon Cowell, Sofia Vergara, Howie Mandel, and Heidi Klum with an unexpected audition.
The Spaceballs star explained why he had been away from the limelight as he told the crowd: ‘I ended up doing pretty well. But I stopped making movies because I quit the business for my children. I had to raise them because I became a widower.
‘Now, after raising my two kids, I’m in a different phase. I think this is my time. And America’s Got Talent is the place for me to show the world I still have something to offer, I still have some sounds to make. There’s still room for a little more.’
For his audition, the voice-trumentalist reminded us all why he became nicknamed ‘The Man of 10,000 Voices’ as he showed off his incredible ability to imitate sounds.
As he created spot-on impersonations of airplane chimes, a variety of radio stations and more, the audition left judges and audience in stitches.
‘I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that you’re here’, head judge Simon gushed.
Winslow then explained how his son had pushed for him to try out as he explained: ‘My son said this is America’s Got Talent, you can come out here and be anything you want instead of being forced to be something you’re doing. This is the show you come to be yourself.
Unsurprisingly, the Gremlins star got four yes votes and he couldn’t hide his delight.
America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays on NBC in the US, and is available to stream on Netflix in the UK.
