James Corden          

English Actor, Comedian & Host of CBS's "The Late Late Show With James Corden"

James Corden is an English actor, comedian, singer, writer, producer and television host. He started his acting career with a role on the London stage when he was 17. He earned accolades for his work on the Alan Bennett play "The History Boys," and went on to create the popular British sitcom "Gavin and Stacey." After winning Olivier and Tony awards for his performance in "One Man, Two Guvnors," Corden was introduced to American audiences as the host of "The Late Late Show" in 2015. He has also voiced leading characters of animated films like Peter Rabbit, and starred in the musical features Into the Woods and Cats.

His biggest early success was as co-creator, co-writer and star of the BBC sitcom "Gavin and Stacey," for which he won the BAFTA Television Award for Best Comedy Performance. He was also featured on the No.1 single "Shout" along with British grime artist Dizzee Rascal an unofficial anthem of the England football team for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa in 2010.

He won praise for another project in 2013 with a Hulu series called "The Wrong Mans," which he and Mathew Baynton created and starred in. In 2014, Corden enjoyed a prominent role in the musical film "Into the Woods," with Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick. Corden went on to appear in "Kill Your Friends" (2015) and provide the voice of leading characters in a string of animated films that included "Trolls" (2016), "The Emoji Movie" (2017) and "Peter Rabbit" (2018). In 2019, following a cameo in the Beatles-themed "Yesterday," he starred in the big-screen adaptation of the Broadway musical "Cats," as Bustopher Jones.

Corden made his late night debut in March 2015 with actor Tom Hanks as one of his guests. Since then he has attracted an array of stars, including Mariah Carey, Katie Couric, David Beckham, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. Although Corden generally did not provide the same degree of biting political commentary known to come from other talk-show hosts like Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert, fans took to his joviality and recurring segments like "Carpool Karaoke," which led to an Emmy win in 2016, and "Drop the Mic," which became a separate TV competition series in 2017. In August 2019, CBS announced that it had extended Corden's contract to host "The Late Late Show" through 2022.
