The late night talk show wheel continues to turn . . .

The Wrap is reporting that English actor and comedian James Corden is set to take over The Late Late Show hosting duties from Craig Ferguson.

The report comes some four months after Ferguson, 52, announced his departure from the 12:35 a.m. slot on CBS. His last episode will be taped in December.

 

Corden, 35, can next be seen in the highly anticipated Disney film Into The Woods, opposite a star-studded cast of Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick. Corden plays the Baker to Emily Blunt’s Baker’s Wife. The London-born actor also appeared in Adam Levine and Keira Knightley's romantic drama Begin Again earlier this year.

The Late Late Show premiered in 1995 with Tom Snyder before hosting duties were passed on to Craig Kilborn. Craig Ferguson has been the Late Late Show host since 2005, with more than 1,800 episodes to his name.
