In April, Ferguson announced that he was stepping down as host after 10 years, and will end his run in December when his contract with CBS expires.
Corden is best known for his award-winning role in Gavin & Stacey, which he co-wrote and co-created. He currently stars in the action-comedy The Wrong Mans and will next appear in the upcoming theatrical adaptation of Into the Woods as the Baker. In 2012, he won a Tony Award for his starring role in One Man, Two Guvnors; prior to that, he briefly guest-starred on Doctor Who. And while Corden has never hosted a late-night program before, he does have hosting experience from his tenure on Sky1's sports-based comedy panel series A League of Their Own.
CBS did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
What do you think of Corden as a replacement for CraigyFerg?
