James Corden’s games are getting increasingly stacked. On Wednesday night, he brought together three guests (Ken Jeong, Jessica Alba, and Kate Mara) to play a game called Flinch. One by one, the celebrities stood behind a glass pane and tried not to flinch as Corden catapulted fruit at them. As each one took their turn, Corden would distract them by asking an innocuous question (such as “what did you have for breakfast today?”) and then fire as they answered, to their shock. It worked for all three of them, especially Mara, who looked positively jittery when it was her turn.
There’s no one on late-night television more musical than James Corden, and there’s no one faster on earth than Usain Bolt, so when the pair faced off in a Drop the Mic rap battle on The Late Late Show Wednesday night, it was sure to be epic. And it was.
Bruno Mars is bringing some “Uptown Funk” to James Corden’s singing caravan in an upcoming edition of Carpool Karaoke.
The singer shared the news on Instagram Saturday, showing off a selfie with the host of CBS’ The Late Late Show. “When an unstoppable force meets an immovable object @j_corden,” wrote Mars. “Thanks for the lift.”
This is one “Memory” Eddie Redmayne may just want to forget.
Redmayne stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden on Thursday night along with Jessica Chastain, and though the meeting was a reunion of sorts for the Brits, who attended the same stage school in their native England, Redmayne was forced to live out everyone’s worst nightmare and watch himself sing on stage as a preteen.
In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander has enough trouble smuggling his suitcase full of magical creatures as it is. On Thursday night, Redmayne and James Corden imagined how much harder that task would be if Newt had to contend with the modern TSA. Corden played an aggressive TSA agent who insisted on opening Redmayne’s suitcase.
“Don’t say I didn’t warn you,” Redmayne said.
James Corden’s Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts game forces celebrities to either disclose uncomfortable truths or withstand nasty snacks. On Wednesday night, it was Kendall Jenner’s turn to sit across the table of gross-out food from Corden.
Jenner told the truth in her first question, when Corden asked her to rank the names of her nieces and nephews in descending order of quality (North, Saint, Dream). “I still love them, I still love them,” she said, justifying picking favorites.
Madonna is desperately seeking transportation: The singer will be James Corden’s next passenger on Carpool Karaoke.
Mandy Moore is living in the past in NBC’s This Is Us, and James Corden brought up a piece of her own history when the actress recently appeared on The Late Late Show.
In America, Thanksgiving means gathering with family to eat good food and watch football, but James Corden knows it can involve plenty of arguing, too, whether about politics or the proper way to cook a turkey. Acknowledging that “on this show, anything worth fighting about is worth singing about,” Corden invited Matthew Broderick to debate turkey-cooking methods in the form of a fugue.
Pop songs are supposed to grab listeners, which puts a lot of importance on the opening lines. James Corden, though, decided to give those first lines with even more importance in his First Line, Every Line game, where contestants sing a pop song, but just the first lyric over and over. On Thursday night’s iteration, he recruited Hailee Steinfeld to play alongside him.
