The Countdown Begins: TheaterMania Goes Into the Woods With James Corden
On Wednesday, December 10, TheaterMania will be releasing exclusive footage from Disney's Into the Woods. In preparation, we're embarking on a five-day journey celebrating the stars of the upcoming film.
From the writer to The Baker to the comedy-maker, Renaissance (funny)man James Corden is a performer who can pretty much do it all. He first came to the British public's attention while starring in the 2007-2010 BBC sitcom Gavin & Stacey (which he also cowrote). Then in 2011, he became a Broadway favorite during his second stint on the Great White Way, as Francis Henshall in Richard Bean's comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.
Following his appearance as The Baker in Disney's upcoming film version of the musical Into The Woods, Corden's next step toward entertainment-world domination will be as Craig Ferguson's replacement on the CBS Late Late Show.
If you find it hard to believe that so many talents could really be wrapped up in one cuddly package, check out this video of Corden singing, dancing, and being generally delightful with Gary Barlow at the Manchester Apollo.
