Tony Winner James Corden to Take Over as Host of CBS's LATE LATE SHOW?

The Wrap is reporting that James Corden, who won a Tony Award for his performance in Broadway's 'One Man, Two Guvnors,' will take over hosting duties for CBS's Craig Ferguson on THE LATE LATE SHOW. A rep for the actor would not respond to a request for comment and CBS would not confirm the report.

The actor will soon be seen in Disney's highly anticipated big screen adaptation of 'Into the Woods' as 'The Baker', and recently starred opposite Keira Knightley in 'Begin Again.'

Ferguson, who has served as host of the Late Late Show since 2005, announced this spring that he would soon be exiting the show. He did not reveal an exact date of departure and joked of his future plans, "I'll do something else .. Probably, I'm thinking, carpentry."

The announcement was one of many upsets in the world of late night TV. David Letterman announced his retirement from 'Late Show,' also on CBS, followed by the announcement that Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert would fill his spot.

Corden's theatre work includes One Man, Two Guvnors (National Theatre) and The History Boys (National Theatre, Broadway and international tour), the West End's Martin Guerre in 1996 and Love Life at London Fringe in 1991. On TV he has appeared in The Brit Awards, A League of Their Own, and Gavin and Stacey (co-creator and co-writer), which won the BAFTA Award for Television Programme of the Year and British Comedy Award for Best New Scripted Comedy. Corden has also won the Writers Guild of Great Britain Award for Comedy Writer of the Year, South Bank Show Award for Comedy, Tric Award for Best Comedy and the National Television Award 2010 for Best Comedy.
