CBS Makes It Official: James Corden Is Our New 'Late Late Show' Host | james corden

CBS has made it official. Lovable British comedian James Corden is set to replace Craig Ferguson as the host of The Late Late Show, beginning in 2015. In a tumultuous few months since cult talk show icon Ferguson announced his departure, everyone from Chelsea Handler to Norm McDonald was rumored to be in line for the late night talk show that Ferguson has hosted for nearly a decade. CBS, however, has gone for a more obscure name in the US with Corden, who is a well-known name in Britain. Corden won a Tony Award in 2012 for his highly acclaimed performance in One Man, Two Guvnors. Corden will also be playing the lead role of The Baker in Disney's upcoming epic adaptation of Into the Woods CBS president Nina Tassler said:
"James Corden is a rare entertainment force who combines irresistible charm, warmth and originality with a diverse range of creative instincts and performance talent. He is the ultimate multi-hyphenate – a writer, creator and performer who is loved and respected in every medium he touches, including theater, comedy, music, film and television."
Much like Ferguson, Corden is not quite yet a household name but there is no better place to break into the scene like The Late Late Show, which under Ferguson has become of the strangest, most hilarious shows on television, and one that I know James Corden will be able to maintain and add his own talents to. The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson will air its final episode on December 19th, and Corden will make his debut as the new host in 2015 sometime, along with Stephen Colbert, who will be replacing television icon David Letterman as host of The Late Show.
