Why James Corden is leaving The Late Late Show
James Corden is bidding farewell to The Late Late Show and here’s why
The well known actor is exiting the talk show after signing a one-year extension to his contract and will officially leave later next year.
“It’s been it’s a really hard decision to leave because I’m so immensely proud of the show,” Corden told Deadline, who first broke the news.
“I’m thrilled to be extending [for a year]. I always thought I’d do it for five years and then leave and then I stayed on. I’ve really been thinking about it for a long time, thinking whether there might be one more adventure.”
Corden added, “My bosses here at CBS have been incredibly supportive and extraordinarily patient with me while I made this decision.
The late night show host addressed his exit in the opening monologue of his April 28 episode.
He got emotional when he reflected on his journey that he describes as being an adventure.
“When I started this journey, it was always going to be just that. It was going to be a journey, an adventure. I never saw it as my final destination, you know? And I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it. And I really think in a year from now that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there.”
Corden has boosted ratings of the show since taking the reign years ago, with his infamous Carpool Karaoke—featuring guests like Adele, Britney Spears, and Niki Minaj, a viral sensation.
The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Prime Time Special—a CBS primetime version of the popular segment—has even earned Corden two Emmys.
“Seven years ago, James Corden came to the U.S. and took television by storm, with huge creative and comedic swings that resonated in a big way with viewers on-air and online,” CBS President and CEO George Cheeks said in a statement.
“James has truly reimagined many elements of the late night format.”
While Cheeks noted that he wished Corden “could stay longer,” he was “very proud [Corden] made CBS his American home.”
Corden has appeared in movies like Cats, The Prom, Into The Woods and Cinderella whilst continuing his gig as late night show host.
Deepfakes are taking over Hollywood
Deepfakes are the online phenomenon changing the way in which we consume and trust social media
Have you ever scrolled through social media and found a celebrity selling something a bit left of centre?
Chances are you have fallen victim to a deepfake.
These images and videos are a type of artificial intelligence, which promises to create doctored videos, which are almost impossible to tell apart from the real thing.
They have typically been used in pornographic clips and for celebrity endorsements.
Prince Harry involved in ‘near catastrophic’ car chase
Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death
Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and her mother were involved in a “near catastrophic car chase” involving paparazzi photographers in New York.
The incident took place after they left the Ms. Foundation for Women, where Meghan was honoured for her work.
“This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD (New York Police Department) officers,” said Prince Harry’s spokesperson.
The chase involved paparazzi driving on the sidewalk, running red lights and driving while taking pictures.
“I thought that was a bit reckless and irresponsible,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said.
Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death.
Princess Diana was killed when her limousine crashed as it sped away from chasing paparazzi in Paris in 1997.
Harry and Meghan stepped down from their royal duties in 2020, partly over what they described as intense media harassment.
Harry is currently involved in numerous court cases in London where he has accused papers of using unlawful methods to target him and his family.
Tom Hanks open to continuing career with A.I. help
Despite the crackdown on A.I., one famous actor has raised the prospect of his career continuing after his death by using the technology
‘Forrest Gump’ and ‘Cast Away’ actor Tom Hanks says new tech could be used to recreate his image to appear in movies “from now until kingdom come”.
Hanks was asked about the legal ramifications of A.I. on a recent podcast with Adam Buxton.
He says talks are being held in the film industry about how to protect actors from the effects of the technology.
Hanks told the host: “I could be hit by a bus tomorrow and that’s it, but performances can go on and on and on and on.”
The award-winning actor acknowledged that tech developments could lead to an AI-generated version of himself appearing in films he may not not normally choose.
