'The Late Late Show' saw James Corden face-off against Riz Ahmed in a rap battle segment.
There was certainly a lot of beef in the room when James Corden and Riz Ahmed went against each other for the exciting 'Drop The Mic' segment of 'The Late Late Show' this week. It's safe to say, Riz MC killed it.
James Corden pictured on the red carpet
With 'more bars than Willy Wonka', according to QuestLove, James Corden is introduced onto the stage to face-off against 'Rogue One' star Riz Ahmed, who happens to also be a rapper in the hip-hop collective Swet Shop Boys.

Beatrix Potter's character Peter Rabbit to come to life in cinematic animation next year.
Last year marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of Beatrix Potter, the author of the classic children's story 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit'. Now, a modernised animated comedy is on the way in her honour, with James Corden voicing the lead leporid.
James Corden and Domhnall Gleeson star in 'Peter Rabbit'
Based on the books by Beatrix Potter, who also created characters like Squirrel Nutkin, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and Mr. Jeremy Fisher, 'Peter Rabbit' is a year away from release - but so far we have quite a lot of information about the story and who's involved.

The 42 year old fashion designer was a guest on 'The Late Late Show' on Wednesday night - and that could only mean one thing!
James Corden has managed to persuade Victoria Beckham to do what the other four Spice Girls were unable to – resume her singing career! The former pop star and current fashion designer will join the British presenter for ‘Carpool Karaoke’.
The 42 year old revealed her involvement with Corden’s now-iconic segment of ‘The Late Late Show’ – on which she was a guest on Wednesday night (March 29th). At some point soon, we can all look forward to the pair of them belting out old Spice Girls hits. With or without the use of Auto-Tune, we don't yet know.
Victoria herself announced her involvement with the CBS show via Instagram on Wednesday, sharing a picture of herself with 38 year old Corden stood behind her laughing hysterically. “What is so funny @j_corden X VB,” she captioned it.

Our wish list for musical guests on potential UK version.
So apparently, James Corden might be bringing his much-loved 'Late Late Show' to the UK, which means a very different calibre of guests for his legendary Carpool Karaoke. He may have his own wish list of potential guests for a UK version, but so do we.
James Corden to bring Carpool Karaoke to the UK?
It isn't like he's never had Brits on the segment before, but we think the fact that One Direction, Chris Martin, Adele and Elton John have been amongst some of the most popular Carpool Karaoke videos is reason enough to bring it to the nation fully. 'We do have some stuff planned this year - which might involve being in the UK', he told the Radio Times. It seems only right, given that the 'Late Late Show' skit originated from a 2011 Red Nose Day clip featuring the late George Michael.

Talk show hosts blast Donald Trump's latest series of memorable quotes.
Following Donald Trump's most recent bizarre press conference, people across the world have been left utterly baffled by his nonsensical statements about fake news, uranium and Russian relations. Among other things. James Corden and Jimmy Fallon have managed to sum up the mess between them on their respective talk shows.
Donald Trump gets torn apart by Jimmy Fallon and James Corden
Speaking of 'mess', Jimmy did a pretty good job mimicking the president on 'The Tonight Show' in a skit entitled 'Trump Press Conference Cold Open', mocking Trump's latest catchphrase, 'we inherited a mess', and donning a blonde wig and a tiny hand.

He and James Corden had an epic Queen Frontman Battle.
If anyone in the world was still in any doubt that Adam Lambert is the perfect frontman for Queen, his skit with James Corden on 'The Late Late Show' should settle it for you. Because this week Adam and James had a brilliant sass-fuelled Front Man Battle.
Adam Lambert and James Corden go 'head to head'
On 'The Late Late Show with James Corden' last night (February 2nd 2017), James made the mistake in getting a little cocky about his favourite band of all time and its current frontman, Adam Lambert. 'I'm not saying I'd be a better frontman than him, I'm just saying I think I'd be a better frontman than him', said James. 'That's all I'm saying.'

Corden videoed himself secretly as he travelled through LAX completely without event.
In the wake of the chaos and outrage caused by Donald Trump’s executive order banning the entry of migrants from a number of Muslim-majority countries – known widely as the ‘Muslim ban’ – James Corden filmed his completely incident-free journey through Los Angeles airport by way of protest against the new law.
In a brief video he secretly filmed this week of his journey through LAX, after he secretly sets up a camera in the back of the car he’s being driven in, the 38 year old host of ‘The Late Late Show’ guided viewers through his experience.
In it, he checks in for his flight, passes through security, orders a grilled cheese sandwich and has a brief and friendly chat with an airline worker as he boards the plane, in what was a very smooth travelling process.

The star opened up on 'The Late Late Show'.
James Corden bravely opened up about the rudest celebrity he'd ever encountered to Khloe Kardashian and his audience during a segment on 'The Late Late Show'. As it turns out, Pierce Brosnan was the one that most sticks in his mind after the latter shoved the presenter at a concert.
James Corden says Pierce Brosnan is the rudest celebrity he's ever met
That's the danger with being rude to talk-show hosts - they may not necessarily be at the top of the A list, but they do know all the A listers and have friends in high places, so we imagine the former James Bond star isn't going to hear the end of this one after he knocked the host down during a U2 show at the Forum in Los Angeles.
As it turns out, all Mariah Carey wants for Christmas is for James Corden to sing 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'.
Christmas 'Carpool Karaoke' is here and it's better than we ever could have hoped. It seems James Corden has been planning this all year, secretly getting all his previous guests to sing along to Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' for a mega karaoke montage.
Mariah Carey appears on Carpool Karaoke
An uber glamorous Mariah Carey joined a Christmas jumper wearing James Corden for 'The Late Late Show''s best segment 'Carpool Karaoke' last night (December 15th 2016), helping the latter out with a spot of Christmas shopping. As they drove along in a car full of wrapped Christmas presents and a tree strapped to the roof, the singer revealed her holiday wishes.
Almost pathologically buoyant, this brightly colourful animated comedy is so cheeky that it's impossible to dislike. The plot may be thin, and the wackiness a bit too full-on, but every moment is packed with smart verbal and visual jokes. This rapid-fire energy keeps us laughing all the way through, while the lively song score has us humming along and wishing we could get up there and dance.
It's set in a garish fantasy world in which sweetly happy trolls are locked in a mortal battle with gloomy bergen who think the only way they can achieve happiness is to eat a troll. It's been 20 years since the trolls escaped to form a secret forest community, so they throw a party to celebrate. Led by Princess Poppy (Anna Kendrick), the festivities feature so much music, glitter and hugging that the bergen's Chef (Christine Baranski) spots their location. The paranoid troll Branch (Justin Timberlake) had warned that this might happen, and sure enough Chef sweeps in and grabs a handful of trolls to take back to bergen King Gristle (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). Feeling responsible, Poppy sets out on a quest to rescue them, and Branch grudgingly accompanies her. They also get help from the lovelorn bergen scullery maid Bridget (Zooey Deschanel).
There isn't a moment in this story that carries even a hint of actual suspense, but the action scenes are still exhilaratingly madcap, and the darker moments along the way generate proper emotion. Thankfully, the lesson is so painfully obvious (you don't need to eat a troll to be happy!) that the filmmakers don't bother hammering it in. Instead, they fill every scene with deranged wit, ridiculous gags and lively character detail.

Who will he bring on next?
Seriously, James Corden? Every single episode of 'Carpool Karaoke' seems to top the one before it, no matter how difficult it is to fathom that possibility. I mean, who's he going to bring in to top his latest guests the Red Hot Chili Peppers?
James Corden invites Red Hot Chili Peppers along for a Los Angeles drive
The Red Hot Chili Peppers brought the most entertaining rendition of 'The Late Late Show''s most-loved segment 'Carpool Karaoke' so far. Not only did we get to hear the band sing along to some of their best hits including 'Californication', 'Dark Necessities' and 'Under The Bridge', but we also got to see frontman Anthony Kiedis and James Corden have a wrestling match and go topless with Flea.
It must much more exciting than the studio show.
Can you imagine just chilling out at home with your housemates when suddenly James Corden shows up on your doorstep with the entire crew from 'The Late Late Show'? Well, that's exactly what happened to one set of friends last night (March 16th 2016) in Los Angeles for the one-year anniversary of the show.
James Corden takes The Late Late Show to the streets of LA
Echoing last year's antics when he arrived at a stranger's house during his second week as host, James Corden took to the streets of LA once again to find another household willing to play host to the British presenter himself, his crew, and a string of celebrity guests for a live airing. While his charm initially failed him at first (most neighbours didn't seem entirely keen on the idea), he eventually came across Natalie and her housemates Taylor, Melodie and Adam, who were only too willing to accomodate them.
Corden took over as the ‘Late Late Show’ host in March 2015 after the departure of Craig Ferguson.
As the host of the ‘Late Late Show’, British comedian James Corden is the new king of the late night American chat show, pulling in high ratings and turning weekly segments into viral sensations. But the 37-year-old has revealed it all almost didn't happen, as he turned down an offer to host the show twice.
James Corden has revealed he turned down an offer to host the ‘Late Late Show’ twice.
Speaking to Mr Porter Corden said: “I was so convinced it wouldn’t work that we rented all our furniture for a year. I mean, I’ve never hosted a chat show before. I’m not a stand-up. I’m not even a sketch comedian.”

Morissette’s 1995 hit was given a 21st century makeover on the ‘Late Late Show’.
Alanis Morissette’s 1996 hit ‘Ironic’ has taken a lot of flack over the years for some of its less-than-ironic lyrics (is rain on your wedding day really ironic?). But on Monday night’s edition of James Corden's 'Late Late Show', the song was given a modern re-working that we can all get behind.
Alanis Morissette has reworked ‘Ironic’ for the 21st century.
Wearing in a red beanie hat, resembling the one she wore in the song’s video, Morissette sat down for an acoustic rendition of the hit, with a few different lyrics. ’An old friend sending you a Facebook request and only find out they're racist after you accept,' Morissette began, before she was joined by host James Corden dressed in a matching outfit.
First-time director Owen Harris boldly attempts a comedy even blacker than American Psycho or Filth with this 1990s Britpop satire, but he never quite gets the tone right. Based on the bestselling novel by John Niven (who also wrote the screenplay), the film lacks a single character the audience can identify with or root for. And since it's impossible to care about the slimy anti-hero, the movie ends up merely feeling mean-spirited.
The slimeball at the centre is Steven (Nicholas Hoult), an A&R man at Unigram Records at the peak of Britpop in 1997. He's had a run of hot new artists, and doesn't let his loathing of pop music slow him down, tormenting his assistant Rebecca (Georgia King), his faithful scout Darren (Craig Roberts) and his matey colleague Roger (James Corden). He's also so determined to get a promotion that he takes things to violent extremes, then becomes even more annoyed when the job goes to his hated rival Antony (Tom Riley). So now all he has left is the search for another vile musician he can turn into the next big thing.
The film has a sleek, snaky energy to it that nicely recreates the cut-throat atmosphere of the period. And Niven has a lot to say about how the music business abuses truly talented artists while promoting inept stars like Steven's aspiring girl band Songbirds. Essentially, this film is a full-on assault on a British society where self-absorbed jerks climb the corporate ladder because they're ambitious, not because they're actually good at anything. The one sense of balance in the story comes from a cop (Edward Hogg), who's investigating a murder but really wants Steven to help him launch his own musical career. In other words, the film is shouting its themes at the top of its voice, rather than letting them hit the target with quiet precision.

The singer became the latest star to join Corden in the segment, delivering the best car ride yet.
James Corden has already delivered many memorial moments and superstar guests since taking over the ‘Late Late Show’ earlier this year. But the latest edition of his ‘Carpool Karaoke’ segment may have just delivered the show’s most epic moment yet, as the host was joined by singing legend, Stevie Wonder.
Corden was joined by Stevie Wonder for the latest edition of ‘Carpool Karaoke’.
The segment started with Wonder in the driving seat with Corden nervously asking the singing superstar if he was sure he had driving license. Wonder then told a relieved Corden that he didn't in fact have his licence with him, before accusing the host of stealing it (in a British accent of course).
Miss Shepherd is a highly educated elderly woman living off barely anything in a small dilapidated van. She asks for nothing from her community, other than to be allowed her peace and to have a place to park her van. Constantly being moved by authorities, she finds herself taking up residence on Alan Bennett's road, much to the displeasure of his house proud neighbours. Despite her prickly disposition and shameless boldness, Bennett - a man of more timid and awkward nature - takes an immediate shine to Miss Shepherd, offering her his driveway to park her vehicle on a temporary basis. Soon, though, just a few weeks turns into fifteen long years as this impoverished musical scholar and this lowly gentleman of humble background become unlikely yet inseparable friends - a friendship rocked by Miss Shepherd's eventual ill health which soon strikes a sadness in the heart of the whole town.

It's the mid 90's and the music scene in the UK is booming. Excess is the word of the decade and the music industry runs on a steady supply of drugs, booze and huge amounts of money. Steven Stelfox is a young A&R manager at one of London's biggest labels but in reality it's quite by chance that he's made it. It's a dog-eat-dog industry and when your ideas run out there's a good chance you'll be cast aside. Not wishing to be the next for the chopping block, Stelfox takes his career ambitions to a whole new level. How well would you survive when even your friends are your enemies?
Since its release in 2008, John Niven's book 'Kill Your Friends' has become a cult classic. Niven himself had worked at many record labels and inspired some of the themes behind the story. Whilst the story is fiction and no one was actually killed, many people in the industry draw many parallels to what actually happened during those years.
The British comedian has made quite the splash Stateside since taking over the chat show in March.
‘The Late Late Show’ host James Corden has reportedly landed a two-year extension on his contract for the CBS show which will lock him in until 2020. The lucrative deal is said to be worth a reported £3million and adds an extra two years onto Corden’s original contract.
James Corden has been offered a big money deal to extend his ‘Late Late Show’ contract.
The 36 only started hosing the late night chat show at the end of March but he’s already pulled in strong ratings and hit high viewing numbers on the show’s Youtube channel which now has more than 850,000 subscribers.
Colbert has gone seriously big for his debut turn on 'The Late Show', which will be broadcast on September 8th.
It’s been nearly nine months since he killed off ‘The Colbert Report’ to take over from David Letterman on CBS, but Stephen Colbert has now revealed some details about what ‘The Late Show’ will look like under his aegis. And boy, has he gone big, announcing that the star guest on his debut show will be Hollywood heavyweight George Clooney.
The major A-list actor will be the first person to chat with Colbert when he begins on September 8th. On Friday morning, the new host tweeted his followers: “George Clooney will be my first-ever #LSSC guest on September 8th! Could one of you let him know?”
