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 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. And while Corden has never hosted a late night program before, the British actor has hosting experience from his tenure on Sky1's sports-based comedy panel series A League of Their Own.

An e-mail to CBS was not immediately returned.
