2012 Breakouts: James Corden

Brit wit

American fans of the hit Britcom Gavin & Stacey can say ''I told you so!'' But a whole lot of Yanks have the Broadway success of One Man, Two Guvnors to thank for their introduction to the show's wildly funny, Tony award-winning star, James Corden. The 34-year-old British actor, who recently wrapped the drama Can a Song Save Your Life? with Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley, takes nothing for granted, remembering that his agent told him, ''I'll get you $500 more a week for a Tony nomination and another $500 if you win. But we both know that will never happen.''
