Getting the job of hosting The Late Late Show on American TV is a Big Big thing and when Britain’s own James Corden was picked, the whole country just said ‘who is he?”
On Monday night they certainly found out as very tongue-in-cheek Corden started off his very first show with a hilarious video showing how he ended up in one of the hottest seats in TV.
Leslie Moonves the President of CBS is decides the fairest way to find someone for this most coveted job is to slip a golden ticket in a random candy bar and who ever finds it gets to be the host. Luckily for James he happens to pick up the winning ticket Chelsea Handler when drops it and he embarks on a grueling training schedule run by a host of Hollywood A List stars, culminating with Meryl Streep who try to get the Brit into shape.
Check out the video and see why next morning the news media gave James Corden rave reviews for his performance and declared this relative unknown to be such an excellent choice as the new host.
