The Talk - Tate Donovan on 'Rocketman' Wig; 'I never want to act without' It

Tate Donovan visits "The Talk" Wednesday and discusses wearing a wig to play Dexter Fletcher in the new Elton John biopic, "Rocketman." "I put this wig on and I just knew what to do.

It was crazy.

I've never acted with a wig before and I never want to act without a wig.

It is the best...It's like a mask and you can do or be anything." Host Sheryl underwood says, "I like your sideburns, too." Donovan responds, "Well those are real." On Taron Egerton bringing Elton John to life and working with him on set the first day, he says, "We were both terrified together.

I'm wearing a wig for the first and he is too.

We're both wearing wigs.

I've never met Elton...I feel as though, after working with Taryn, that I know Elton John.

I mean he gives a performance that at once is ferocious, his ambition and his energy."
