Scarlett Johansson Does The Weather On 'Today' [VIDEO]

Scarlett Johansson's latest role is not in a Hollywood blockbuster but on television, reading the weather report. Johansson eagerly read the weather on Tuesday's “Today” show.
Johansson was on “Today” to plug her latest movie, “Hitchcock.” In the movie Johansson plays Janet Leigh, star of “Psycho,” while Sir Anthony Hopkins plays director Alfred Hitchcock. Fate had other plans as Al Roker had laryngitis and could not read the weather as he has been doing for more than 30 years.
While Johansson was wrapping up her “Today” segment, the question was asked who could step up in Roker's place and read the weather. Johansson quickly obliged and raised her hand saying, “I have plenty of experience with weather.” She went on to say, “This is my dream come true, to do the weather with Al Roker. I can't believe it.”
When it came time to do the weather, Roker shielded Johansson from the rain with an umbrella. While Johansson may not have been the best weatherperson of all time, she was enthusiastic about the role. She did not point to any location properly, sweeping her hand over California when saying New Orleans, for example, but she did debut a promising trademark phrase and signoff. She closed with, “Here's what's happening in your neck of the woods,” followed by a kick, jazz hands and a smile.
Chances are Johansson will continue to star in movies such as “The Avengers 2” instead of becoming a weatherperson but on Tuesday, Johansson did live out one of her dreams. You can view Scarlet Johansson reading the weather on “Today” below.
