James Corden is taking a little break from The Late Late Show to focus on one of his other projects, but that doesn’t mean this beloved show is going off the air. Some of our favorite celebrities are getting ready to replace him in the hosting chair during this time!
Harry Styles, Melissa McCarthy, Chance the Rapper, Ken Jeong, and Jeff Goldblum will step into Corden’s shoes and take on the hosting duties in the next few weeks. Alicia Keys will kick things off on December 9th, and the air dates for the rest of guest hosts are yet to be announced.
James Corden will be absent because he’s busy filming Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of hit musical The Prom, also starring Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, and Awkwafina. Executive producers of The Late Late Show, Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe, are looking forward to welcoming other hosts to the show while he’s not around.
“We are of course going to miss James during these two weeks of shows. But it’s a great consolation that we have some of the biggest stars in the world to step into his shoes. We are really looking forward to these exciting, entertaining and ambitious weeks of shows,” said the duo in a statement.
