James Corden

James Corden was born on 22 August 1978 and grew up in Buckinghamshire, England, where he studied drama.
 
It took eight long years of trying before the British comedian got his first job - a late Nineties stint in the West End musical Martin Guerre. The experience was positive though, he says, as it "taught me about rejection from a really early age".

Afterwards, TV work started rolling in and he signed up for parts in Teachers, Fat Friends and Hollyoaks. He also landed a movie role in Mike Leigh's All Or Nothing. It wasn’t until 2008, however, that James' star really started to rise, when Gavin & Stacy, the BAFTA-winning BBC comedy he co-wrote and starred in with Ruth Jones, gained a cult following.

Since then his profile has continued to grow with a co-host slot at the Brit Awards with Kylie Minogue and his big screen horror spoof Lesbian Vampire Killers. He was since hosted the Brit Awards three times and in 2012, James won the Tony Awards for Best Leading Actor in a Play for his performance in One Man, Two Guvnors.

James is married to Julia Carey and they have a three year old son together. Earlier this year it was revealed that the happy couple are expecting their second child.

In August 2014, it was announced that the Little Britain star had landed himself a job as a host on American TV. He will be replacing Scottish presenter Craig Ferguson as the face of the CBS network's The Late Late Show, meaning James will soon be a personality known widely across households in the United States.
