CBS names actor/comedian James Corden as new host of the ‘Late Late Show’ replacing Craig Ferguson next year.  His name may not be totally recognizable to you, but his face might be.  James has performed on Broadway and has starred in shows TV and film.

He has a new film out now called ‘Begin Again’ with Keira Nightley and Mark Ruffalo, and this December another with Meryl Streep.

“I can’t describe how thrilled and honored I am to be taking over from the brilliant Craig Ferguson,” said Corden in a statement. “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.”
