Corden is well known for his TV roles in Gavin and Stacey and The Wrong Mans (which he co-created), both of which have aired in Australia on ABC.
US media is reacting to the speculation by filling in their readers on who the Brit is, along with more than a few articles questioning another white male (their words) in the role. Or maybe it’s all Piers Morgan’s fault.
“No one is arguing that he’s not talented or capable, but why aren’t we tired of this bullshit assumption that white men are the only people capable of hosting late night television shows?” asked one report.
Ferguson, who’s hosted The Late Late Show since 2005, announced that he would be departing the series in April, and exit at “the end of this year.” While he had been speculated as a replacement for David Letterman, that gig when to Stephen Colbert.
CBS is yet to confirm Corden in the host role.
The Late Late Show airs in Australia on ELEVEN.
