Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson busts out his dance moves in R.E.M.’s new video “UBerlin,” directed by his fiancé Sam Taylor-Wood. The song is featured on the band's latest disc Collapse Into Now, their 15th studio album to date. In the video, Johnson is a slave to the music, completely uninhibited as he walks down the street, mimicking R.E.M. front man Michael Stipe with his dance moves. Johnson is also noticeably more muscular, which could be in preparation for his role in the upcoming Kick-Ass 2.

Johnson and Taylor-Wood first collaborated on and off-screen in last fall’s John Lennon film Nowhere Boy. Shortly after production wrapped, the couple —whose age difference spans 23 years—announced they were expecting their first child together, with Taylor-Wood giving birth to daughter Wylda Rae in July. The two have since become engaged, and seem keen on continuing the collaborative process, as long as they both shall live. —EMILY EXTON

    Aaron Johnson is an off-the-charts-level talent here, dancing in this wonderful video. Sam Taylor Wood has provided a spectacular showcase for this amazing actor to shine yet again. BRAVO!! If Aaron would decide to give up acting, any dancing corps would be lucky to have him as a member. The guy's got moves.

    All happiness to him and Sam for their family.
