Actor James Marsden has made a career out of portraying the "Ralph Bellamy" role, as the guy who every leading lady dumps or treats as second banana: he was dumped by Rachel McAdams in The Notebook, he was jilted by Amy Adams in Enchanted, he was forced to raise Superman's kid in Superman Returns, and even as Cyclops, he was a background player in his featured love triangle with Jean Grey and Wolverine in the original X-Men trilogy (though we have been told that he did get Katherine Heigl in 27 Dresses). But at least he has one thing to fall back on: he sings ok!

According to TMZ, the video above was taken early Friday morning outside "a famous NYC hot dog stand." We think it may be Chelsea Papaya, because there is a sign for burgers behind him...and they definitely have burgers. However, we'd recommend people start staking out every hot dog place in the city around 4 a.m. for a chance to sing with Marsden.

Since we primarily only know Marsden from his ill-fated second banana role as Cyclops, we had no idea he was that good a singer—but it seems it isn't actually that much of a surprise for Marsdenites. Below, watch Marsden sing and toe-tap his way through roles on Ally McBeal, Enchanted, and Hairspray.
