Well, if you've been wondering who's going to replace Craig Ferguson on the CBS Late Late Show, wonder no more. Though not official, it appears to be -- James Corden!
The consideration of a TV series later on is no offhanded assumption. Corden is very popular in England thanks to a couple of TV series that he was in and co-wrote, most notably Gavin and Stacey, and the character he created, Smithy.
If you'd like to see more of him, it's worth renting One Chance. It's a very nice, sweet film based on a true story about a shlubby guy who appeared on Britain's Got Talent, Paul Potts, who went on to win and developed a successful recording career singing opera.
Here's a video of him playing his Smithy character in a sketch for British Comic Relief in 2010. You won't recognize all the celebrities at the roundtable, which would help, but it's fun enough, and throughout there are a number of major surprises. Just one example -- the former Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Plus...well, you'll see.
