James Corden is the host of CBS's late-night talk show "The Late Late Show with James Corden." He also recently starred, produced and wrote Hulu's BAFTA-nominated comedy thriller "The Wrong Mans."

Born in Buckinghamshire, James Corden has quickly become one of Britain's most notable English BAFTA winning comedy actor, writer and producer. His attention to detail and ingenious timing create television that is pure pleasure to watch, so much so that The Independent hailed James Corden "the hottest property in British television." James famously secured his first break undertaking the role as a pupil in "The History Boys" by Alan Bennett. This outstanding portrayal of young teenage boys in the pursuit of sex, sport and a place in higher education is charming, and the talent exhibited earned James a place on the international tour at The National Theatre; Broadway and in the cinema adaptation in 1994.

In 1997, James made his first screen debut in the film "24/7" directed by Shane Meadows, and went on to have a number of small television parts including "The Everglades," "Little Britain" and "Teachers." These roles led to James' first most recognizable television part in the British comedy "Fat Friends" in 2000 in which James played a teenage member of a slimming club.

It was in 2007 that James embarked on his most impressive venture yet — along with his fellow "Fat Friends" star Ruth Jones, they created and co-starred in the award winning "Gavin and Stacy." The comedy became one of the most recognizable hit comedies from the last two years, winning the Audience Award at the 2008 BAFTAs and James himself scooping the award for Best Comedy Performance.

In 2008 James won Best Breakthrough Talent at the GQ Man of the Year Awards and together with co-writer Ruth Jones picked up the award for Best TV Comedy at The Writers Guild Awards in 2008. In 2009 "Gavin & Stacey" also won Best British Comedy Show at the British Comedy Awards and Most Popular Comedy Programme at the National Television Awards (2010).

In 2009 James starred to much critical acclaim in Nick Moran's "Telstar," alongside Kevin Spacey, and the spoof horror film "Lesbian Vampire Killers." James also co-wrote/starred with Matthew Horne in the BBC sketch show "Horne and Corden." 2009 also saw James write and star in a number of comedy sketches including the infamous England football team sketch for Comic Relief. He also teamed up with F1 world champion Jenson Button to film a sketch for Sports Relief and continues to be a huge supporter of the cause.

2010 was an equally busy year for James who secured his own sports panel show on Sky 1 HD called "A League of Their Own." The brand new format saw Ashes hero Andrew Flintoff and former England footballer and Sky Sports presenter Jamie Redknapp line up as team captains. Featuring physical challenges, comedians, celebrities, and cameo appearances from the biggest names in sport, the show was the perfect platform for one-upmanship mixing specialist knowledge of groundbreaking sporting moments with hilarious facts and figures.

James also appeared in the remake of Jonathan Swift's story "Gullivers Travels" playing the right-hand man to Lemuel Gulliver, played by Hollywood top comic Jack Black. Also starring in this 20th Century Fox blockbuster are stand-up legend Billy Connolly and comedy queen Catherine Tate

ITV1 commissioned 14 episodes of "James Corden's World Cup Live" that TXed immediately after every ITV1 World Cup evening game for a 1-hour live show — the second half of which TXed on ITV4. "James Corden's World Cup Live," a Comedy Entertainment show celebrated the World Cup in all its glory. Every night James was joined by two guests interviewed in his typical upbeat and cheeky spirit.

James was recently back with a second series of his popular sports quiz "A League of Their Own," and still found time to be awarded GQ Comedian of the Year 2010. He was also nominated in the Best Entertainment Programme category for "James Corden's World Cup Live Show" from the National Television Awards.

Corden's additional film credits include "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" with Jeff Bridges, "The Three Musketeers" with Orlando Bloom, and more recently, "Begin Again," opposite Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo, and the musical "Into the Woods," opposite Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp and Emily Blunt.
