CBS has apparently settled on a replacement for The Late Late Show host as Craig Ferguson aims to depart the late night talk show this December. The Wrap is reporting that English actor, comedian, and writer James Corden will take over The Late Late Show hosting duties in Ferguson’s stead, making for a somewhat surprising (and yet not surprising) choice. Corden rose to prominence in the UK as the co-creator, co-writer, and star of the BBC sitcom Gavin & Stacey and subsequently lead the comedy play One Man, Two Guvnors, which earned him a Tony Award for its Broadway run. Corden had a supporting role in this summer’s musical indie Begin Again and leads the upcoming Disney musical Into the Woods alongside Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep, which opens this Christmas. More after the jump.
