Report: James Corden to Replace Craig Ferguson on 'Late Late Show'


The 'Gavin and Stacey' star is named a candidate to take over the hosting gig on the CBS late-night talk show.

CBS may have found the replacement for Craig Ferguson on "Late Late Show". British funnyman James Corden is said to be hired to host the late-night talk show following Ferguson's impending departure. TheWrap first reported the news.

Corden had an early success as co-creator, co-writer and star of BBC's sitcom "Gavin & Stacey" which ran from 2007-2010. He won a Tony Award in 2012 for his performance in comedic play "One Man, Two Guvnors". The 35-year-old actor stars in drama movie "Begin Again", which has Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo in the lead roles, and will next be seen in Disney's musical fantasy film "Into the Woods" which is due December 25 in the United States.

Neither Corden nor CBS has commented on the report.

Ferguson, who has hosted CBS' "Late Late Show" since 2005, announced his exit in April. He will bid farewell to the show at the end of the year. Meanwhile, he has secured a new job as the host of new game show "Celebrity Name Game" which will premiere in September.

CBS will undergo a major shakeup in its late-night line-up as David Letterman earlier announced that he would resign as the "Late Show" host in 2015. Ferguson reportedly was contractually promised Letterman's chair when he retired, but CBS chose Stephen Colbert instead to take the throne.
