James Kimberley Corden OBE (born 22 August 1978 in London, England) is an English actor, singer, comedian, and television personality.

Though active since 1996, Corden first rose to fame in 2007's Gavin & Stacey, which he co-produced with Ruth Jones. The show was positively received, and netted him several awards. From there, he went on to have a number of acting roles, and has served as presenter for a number of award shows (the Brit Awards in 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014, the 70th Tony Awards in 2016, and the Grammy Awards in 2017 and 2018).

From 2015 to 2023, he was host of The Late Late Show, taking over for Craig Ferguson.

He's also one of many, many part-owners of Angel City FC, a Los Angeles-based team set to start play in the National Women's Soccer League in 2022.

As of 2021, due to his appearances in flop adaptations of Broadway musicals The Prom and Cats, he is considered to movie musicals what Ted McGinley is to television comedies, to the extent that when a film version of Wicked was announced, a petition popped up online asking to keep him out of it!
