James Corden is to be the new host of The Late Late Show, reports The Wrap. The British actor, writer and comedian will take over from Craig Ferguson when he steps down in December after ten years as host of the popular CBS show. The channel have yet to confirm the news themselves, and Corden is keeping quiet for now, but it looks pretty likely to be announced soon.
While Corden might not be a well known name in the US, he is very popular in Britain, best known for his role as Smithy in sitcom Gavin and Stacey, which he also co-wrote. He also hosts popular sports panel quiz show A League of Their Own, as well as doing tireless work for Comic Relief and Sports relief and is a very fine stage actor, should you ever get the chance to see him. Indeed, he won a Tony award for his role in One Man, Two Guvnors.
US viewers will also get the chance to see Corden on the big screen too. He is currently appearing alongside Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo in Begin Again, and will also star in Disney’s Into the Woods to be released at Christmas.
So, US citizens, what do you think of Corden taking over the reins? And for those of us here in the UK, how do we feel about losing one of our comedic treasures?!
