James Corden’s hosting duties at “The Late Late Show with James Corden” are coming to an end soon.
The beloved and sometimes controversial late-night talk-show host will stop hosting the show this summer.
His final guest lineup has yet to be revealed, but one of his final guests has been!
James Corden Is Bringing THIS A-List Actor To Help Send Him Off Air
The British TV host has enlisted the help of “Maverick” himself, aka, Tom Cruise.
The U.S. Sun has learned Corden and Cruise have been working together to take the show out on a high note.
Corden and Cruise have “come up with a hilarious skit and send-off package,” a source revealed.

Filming is planned for the coming weeks, and their sketches are set to be aired over the next few months.
Another source added, “James wants a big send-off. He wants it to be as memorable as possible and Tom has given him some of his best moments of the show.”
Cruise once took Corden flying Top Gun style.
“When he put feelers out, Tom was one of the first people to come back and say he would love to do it,” they added. “They’re planning when they can film, and making their schedules align.”
It was announced in April 2022 that the British actor, singer and comedian will depart his beloved talk show, “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” ahead of summer 2023.
Earlier this year, he appeared on “NBC10 Boston’s Today” and revealed that he’s not the “real James Corden” on TV.
Rather, he’s “performing” and “playing a character” while appearing on ‘The Late Late Show.’

“I guess I see it all as a performance, really,” he admitted. “I see it all as a character that I’m sort of playing.”
He’s definitely a skilled actor having appeared in several movie-musical adaptations including, “Into The Woods,” “Cinderella” and “Cats.”
Corden is also famous for creating his “Carpool Karaoke” and “Crosswalk the Musical” series, which are big performances in it of themselves.
He put his “performance” on TV statement into perspective saying, “Like, it would be odd if I got home and opened the fridge and was like, ‘Look who’s here tonight! Stick around, we’ll be right back!’”

While Corden is leaving his late-night talk-show, he’s not leaving TV screens.
His current project is titled, “Mammals,” an Amazon Prime Video series.
The British star explained the difference between hosting a talk show and a video series is “the time” it takes to film them.
“Our [Late Late] show is an hour a day,” Corden explained.
While explaining what it takes to shoot “Mammals,” he said, “This entire series is two hours and forty minutes.”
Last year, Corden has been at the center of restaurant etiquette controversy and joke stealing.
Additionally, he was called out for horrid behavior toward restaurant staff at Balthazar, with the restaurant’s owner calling him out publicly.
In October 2022, he was called out for stealing a Ricky Gervais joke and using it on ‘The Late Late Show.’
The entire bit sounded eerily similar exactly like a bit Ricky Gervais told back in 2018, and the British comedian responded to Corden.
