After The Wrap reported  about a month ago that James Corden woud be taking over hosting duties of The Late Late Show from Craig Ferguson this April, the news was confirmed today by CBS.

It’s perfectly OK if you don’t know who Corden is just yet. He’ll be starring in the highly-anticipated film Into the Woods this Christmas, and can currently be seen playing a supporting role in Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo’s Begin Again. The Brit also appeared in One Chance and won a Tony Award in 2010 for his work in One Man, Two Guvnors. To be fair, he is a big star in England, having written and produced the BAFTA-winning sitcom Gavin and Stacey.

Ferguson, whom Corden will be replacing, decided to leave The Late Late Show for unexplained reasons after hosting since 2005. While Ferguson’s departure may have something to do with the fact that the only people who watch the show are those who fall asleep while The Late Show is on, it's not fair to speculate.
