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!
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Synder gave fans at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego a few treats, but none may have been better than the sneak footage that was shown to the audience!
We talked a little about the description of the sneak peek yesterday, but there is no way to describe the atmosphere and mood of the snippet of the film except to say that we're pumped for this movie to come out!
After stirring the crowd into a frenzy with the epic stare down between Batman and Superman, the two actors portraying those awesome comic book heroes, Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, appeared onstage, as well.
And it sure seems like no one was complaining of the choice of Ben for Batman then!
After the footage, Zack whipped the crowd into another frenzy by telling the crowd they had to take off to finish the movie, and that's when a bit of footage appeared from the new film Jupiter Ascending, as well! The Wachowskis' upcoming space movie stars Mila Kunis, and we're definitely pumped for that set-in-space epic!!!
