James Corden Confirmed As New Host Of The Late Late Show
The Tony award winner is 'thrilled' with his new job overseas…
James Corden has been confirmed as the new host of CBS's The Late Late Show in the US.
The news comes after months of speculation, with Corden now officially announced to be taking over from Craig Ferguson in 2015.
"I can't describe how thrilled and honoured I am to be taking over from the brilliant Craig Ferguson," Corden said.
"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."
Chairman of CBS Entertainment Nina Tassler added: "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 theatre, comedy, music, film and television."
"James is already a big star in the UK and he's wowed American audiences on Broadway; we're very excited to introduce his considerable and very unique talents to our network television audience on a daily basis."
Current host Ferguson has shown there are no hard feelings with Corden, tweeting his approval at the change-up.
The US is no stranger to James after he won a Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Play in 2012 for his role in One Man, Two Guvnors on Broadway.
He's also rubbed shoulders with the likes of Mark Ruffalo, Keira Knightley and Adam Levine recently in Hollywood film 'Begin Again'.
