James Corden Officially Announced as Craig Ferguson's 'Late Late Show' Replacement!

James Cordon has officially been announced as the replacement for Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show on CBS!

James Corden is a rare entertainment force who combines irresistible charm, warmth and originality with a diverse range of creative instincts and performance talent,” Nina Tassler, Chairman, CBS Entertainment, said in a statement. “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. 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.”

“I can’t describe how thrilled and honoured I am to be taking over from the brilliant Craig Ferguson,” James 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.”

The Into the Woods actor will take over in 2015.
