Taron Egerton, who is playing Elton in Rocketman, an upcoming film about the singer’s life, saw the pop legend in Fresno on Tuesday night.
The actor shared a post on Instagram seated at John’s piano before the start of the show at the Save Mart Center, writing that he was “warming up E’s piano stool for him.”
“What can I say?” Egerton continued. “He’d be lost without me.”
Taron is among the co-chairs of this year's Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party. So is Jamie Bell, who will be portraying Bernie Taupin in Rocketman (to be released in the spring).
Other co-chairs of the EJAF fundraiser include Heidi Klum; Neil Patrick Harris; Miley Cyrus; Ellen DeGeneres; Sharon Osbourne; Mike Myers; Katy Perry; Spike Lee, Coldplay‘s Chris Martin; Rob Lowe; Tyler Perry; Sharon Stone; Britney Spears; Denzel Washington; and Steven Tyler.
