James Corden, who serves as host of CBS's THE LATE LATE SHOW, was recently named host of the 2016 TONY AWARDS. Since Corden took the reigns as host in March 2015, he has quickly become known for generating buzzworthy viral videos, such as Carpool Karaoke and his mix of celebrity guests, edgy musical acts, games and sketches. Corden differentiates his show by offering viewers a peek behind-the-scenes into the green room, bringing all of his guests out at once and lending his musical and acting talents to various sketches.
He recently starred opposite Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp and Emily Blunt in the Golden Globe Award-nominated feature film INTO THE WOODS. Additionally, Corden has hosted the BAFTA Award-winning UK sports-themed comedy game show "A League of Their Own" and starred in, produced and wrote the BAFTA nominated comedy thriller "The Wrong Mans." In 2013, Corden was awarded the Royal Television Society Award for Comedy Writer of the Year for his work on the show.
Outside of his native England, Corden attracted international attention as the lead in the hit comedic play "One Man, Two Guvnors," performing first in the National Theatre and the West End in London and then on Broadway, which earned him the 2012 Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Play. His additional theater credits include the worldwide tour of "The History Boys" in the role of Timms, which he also played in the feature film adaptation.
