James Corden is Officially New ‘The Late Late Show’ Host


British actor and comedian James Corden is preparing to relocate to America after officially landing the role as the new host of TV’s The Late Late Show.

The Begin Again star will take over from fellow Brit Craig Ferguson, who will depart the programme after nine years as host in December.

Monday’s announcement from CBS network bosses comes a month after reports initially surfaced revealing Corden was the frontrunner for the job, and the 36 year old can’t believe his luck.

A statement released by Corden reads: “I can’t describe how thrilled and honoured I am to be taking over from the brilliant Craig Ferguson.

“To be asked to host such a prestigious show on America’s No. 1 (sic) 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 no stranger to U.S. audiences – he won a Tony Award in 2012 for his star turn in Broadway show One Man, Two Guvnors, while he also appeared in the 2006 film adaptation of The History Boys, and landed a role alongside Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo in comedy drama Begin Again, which was released earlier this year.
