- Late Night Antics August 5
The late-night talk show game has a new player. The Wrap reports that British actor and comedian James Corden has been tapped to take over hosting duties on CBS' The Late Late Show, replacing Craig Ferguson, who announced in April that he'd be vacating the hosting seat by the end of the year.
Corden has a long string of British TV credits, but his star is currently on the rise in the United States. He can currently be seen in the musical dramedy Begin Again, and will star alongside A-listers like Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, and Anna Kendrick in Disney's upcoming Into the Woods.- -
