Have you ever wondered what would happen if Jason Bourne or Jack Bauer left their phone in the bathroom and a janitor picked it up?
Probably not, but thankfully James Corden and Mathew Baynton did.

Encouraged by office mail-room delivery boy Phil that they can be the heroes of the hour, the duo soon find themselves plunged into a deadly kidnap situation. The Wrong Mans involves a world of unexpected international conspiracy and intrigue, with the mysterious Scarlett and Stevens and the enigmatic secret agent Walker at the heart of the unfurling chaos.
