James Corden Confirmed As New Late Late Show Host – SEE STATEMENT
CBS confirmed on Monday that James Corden will be the new host of “The Late Late Show.”
He will replace Craig Ferguson, who announced in April he’s leaving the show.
“I can’t describe how thrilled and honored I am to be taking over from the brilliant Craig Ferguson,” said Corden. “To be asked to host such a prestigious show on America’s #1 network is hugely exciting. I can’t wait to get started, and will do my very best to make a show America will enjoy.”
Corden is a British actor known for the BBC sitcom “Gavin & Stacey” and his Tony Award-winning performance in “One Man, Two Guvnors” on Broadway.
He recently appeared in the film Begin Again, and will be seen in the upcoming Into The Woods.
