Meet James Corden -- the Man Replacing Craig Ferguson on 'The Late Late Show'

Why CBS chose this man as host.

“James Corden is a rare entertainment force who combines irresistible charm, warmth and originality with a diverse range of creative instincts and performance talent,” said Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment.

Corden himself added that he couldn't "describe how thrilled and honored I am to be taking over from the brilliant Craig Ferguson."

Ferguson announced his departure in April from the show he's host for a decade. He will end his run this December.
