Report: James Corden To Replace Craig Ferguson In Late Night
(Undated) -- CBS has reportedly tapped James Corden to take on "Late Late Show" hosting duties after Craig Ferguson leaves the post. Sources tell TheWrap.com the British actor is next in line for the job, although CBS has yet to confirm the reports. A Tony Award winner, Corden won the Tony for Best Actor in a Play for his work in the Broadway comedy "One Man, Two Guvnors." He currently stars alongside Keira Knightley in the movie "Begin Again."

Ferguson will leave "The Late Late Show" later this year. He announced his exit plans in April, shortly after David Letterman revealed his plans to retire from the "Late Show" in 2015. Stephen Colbert has been tapped to replace Letterman as host.
