James Corden on “Going Out With a Bang”

In his statement regarding him leaving The Late Late Show, James Corden shared it all. Before you suspect a fallout, there’s none of that involved. The charming British comedian is simply ready to move on to other challenges and adventures.

Whether that would be in film, comedy, or another genre, we’re yet to see.
