The Late Late Show announced on Twitter its first guests with new host James Corden: two-time Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks, Scandal’s Kerry Washington, and comedians Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. 

The late night show has featured a series of guest hosts since the exit of long-time host Craig Fergson on Dec. 19 including Judd Apatow, Jim Gaffigan, Whitney Cummings and John Mayer. Although Corden’s official hosting gig doesn’t start until March 23, the Englishman has had several famous pals show their support. 

Corden takes up the hosting stint following a recent role in the Oscar-nominated Into the Woods as the Baker. The actor and comedian is also set to appear in the comedy-thiller Kill Your Friends starring Nicholas Hoult and The Lady in the Van with Maggie Smith and Dominic Cooper.
