James Corden Plots His Post-Late Late Show Future

He’s been mostly laying low over the eleven months since he taped his last episode of CBS’ The Late Late Show, but James Corden is getting back to work.

In his first major role since leaving his show, Corden will take the stage at London’s Old Vic Theatre this summer, starring in the world premiere of Joe Penhall’s The Constituent.

Though he’s best known in the United States as a talk show host, Corden is also an accomplished actor. In 2012, he won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play for his one-man show One Man, Two Guvnors. That play, like The Constituent, originated in London’s West End.

Corden hosted The Late Late Show for eight years, from 2015-2023. In 2022 he announced he would leave the show the following year. He was the fourth and final host of the CBS franchise. Earlier this year CBS filled the time slot with the Taylor Tomlinson-hosted comedy panel show, After Midnight.

The two-time host of the Tony Awards has called theater his first love, telling The New York Times in 2019, “The only thing I ever really aspired to was being in a West End musical. That was the single greatest thing you could do with your life, I thought.”

Corden is also dipping his toes back in hosting pool. In November it was announced that he would host a new show for SiriusXM, titled This Life of Mine With James Corden. The weekly show premiered last month and has featured in-depth interviews with the likes of David Beckham, Jeremy Renner, Kim Kardashian, and Martin Scorcese.

Corden’s West End return in The Constituent is slated to run from June 13th to August 10th.
