With all the babymomma
drama swirling around these days, we almost forgot about the upcoming movie he produced! Simon Cowell
One Chance is the big screen adaptation of a real-life story success and inspiration; it chronicles Paul Potts' wonderful rise through the ranks of Britain's Got Talent!!!
and Katy Perry were looked at to play Paul's wife, and we're Adele disappointed that never happened, but Paul's character will at least be portrayed by -winning Tony thespian James Corden!
We finally stumbled across the terrific looking trailer and we acn't wait to hear what you think!!!

As we reported
earlier, while appearing on an episode of the British show A League Of Their Own, Harry Styles was caught on kisscam with the host, James Corden, and gave him the best smooch ever!
And now we can watch it on loop because the episode has officially aired!
SRSLY while Harry was sitting on his lap, we wonder if James' 1D became hard as a
Rock (Me) as Harry gave him his Last First Kiss!
Just thinking about that mouth-to-mouth resuscitation will keep us
Up All Night!

James Corden is already a big deal in England, but we think the actor and funnyman is going to be huge international superstar. He's like Russell Brand but a better acting, less messy and far more endearing.
The Brit is currently starring on Broadway - for one more week - in
One Man Two Guvnors, which should really just be called The James Corden Show. He makes it and elevates it!
Corden takes the material - a plot that is inconsequential, just a device for the comedy - and he turns the slapstick into high art!
He is a master at his craft! And now we understand why he beat Phillip Seymour Hoffman for that Tony Award!
Corden's role requires so much comedic ability - because a good percentage of the show is improvised and depends on random audience members picked and plopped on stage. The show can very different from night to night, and that also makes it very exciting to see as well. It really is invaluable to the show that Corden is not just an actor, but also a writer and comic as well.
He brings soooo much to the table!
James is surrounded by a fine troupe of actors, most notably
Tom Edden as the bumbling Alfie.
The show is in its final week. So if you haven't seen it yet, run to get your tickets NOW!

unfortunately didn't get the Andrew Garfield Tony Awards win for Best Performance By An Actor In A Featured Role In A Play, but instead, it was a recipient who was just as worthy!
SMASH's Christian Borle took home the win for his work in Peter and the Starcatcher, beating out Michael Cumpsty, Tom Edden, and Jeremy Shamos!
Aww! Such a sweetheart!
Easily one of the nicest speeches of the evening, and so cute to see his mom and sister looking on from audience, clearly so very proud!
