Over a year after her Oscar nom for her role as Elizabeth in The King's Speech, and three months out from her knighthood, Dame Helena Bonham Carter is taking a spin as another famous queen.

In the video for the title track from Rufus Wainwright's upcoming seventh album, Out Of the Game Carter does a great lip sync in librarian drag while Rufus plays her back-up library patrons - all doing their best cruising through the stacks.

I haven't been addicted to a Rufus album since 2004's Want Two, (Though Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall still gets a regular listen), but this seems hopeful.

Thoughts? Check out the video after the jump. The album drops May 1.
