And that fresh meat is now officially James Corden!
The actor-comedian may be famous in England, but he has many here in the States asking, who IS James Corden anyway?
Well, find out more about the next Late, Late Show host …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
In a statement finally confirming the news, James said:
"I can't describe how thrilled and honoured I am to be taking over from the brilliant Craig Ferguson. I can't wait to get started, and will do my very best to make a show America will enjoy."
But who is this affable Brit you ask? CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler said:
Craig Ferguson is closing in!
Although Craig is leaving The Late Late Show, according to a source, he's in talks to host an early evening talk show in the fall of 2015!
And there was much rejoicing throughout the land!
Apparently, the show's going to be a half-hour long, and will apparently be a syndicated series in the time slot right before primetime!
Returning will apparently be his skeletonic sidekick Geoff, and his executive producer!
We're so excited Craig might have a new talk show!
Well, CBS finally found someone to replace Craig Ferguson!
The British actor James Corden will be sitting behind the desk of The Late Late Show as its new host!
Craig announced that he was stepping down in April, and that he'll end his run at the end of the year!
No word yet on when James' late night show would start, but all the same, congrats James!
For those of you not familiar with James, he's going to be starring in Disney's Into the Woods! Ch-ch-check out the trailer…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Someone came out as gay last night at the Cannes Film Festival!
And he’s a rough, rugged Viking!
How To Train Your Dragon 2 director Dean DeBlois (who is himself openly gay) confirmed that a character from his animated blockbuster is indeed a same-sex loving dragon slayer!
So who is it??
None other than the Craig Ferguson voiced Gobber!
DeBlois explained how the coming out occurred in the upcoming sequel during a scene where a husband and wife are fighting in front of Gobber.
