近日，CBS电视台公布了《深深夜秀》（The Late Late Show）的最新主持人人选——英国喜剧演员詹姆斯·柯登（James Corden）将取代克莱格-弗格森（Craig Ferguson）成为新一任CBS王牌脱口秀的面孔。
CBS的最终决定让许多人都感到意外，因为詹姆斯·柯登在美国并不为人所知。这个消息曾在8月初走路风声，当时许多人的第一反应就是要上网去搜搜这个人到底是谁。搜索结果显示，柯登是一位拥有440万推特粉丝的影、视、剧三栖人才。他曾出演BBC剧集《凯文和史黛西》（Gavin& Stacey）、电影《歌曲改变人生》（Begin Again）以及舞台剧(One Man, Two Guvnors)。
Actor James Corden has been confirmed as Craig Ferguson's successor as host of The Late Late Show on American TV.
"I can't wait to get started," said the 36-year-old star of Gavin and Stacey.
He said he was "thrilled and honoured" to follow the "brilliant" Ferguson and that it was "hugely exciting... to host such a prestigious show".
Corden will take over next year from Ferguson, who has been hosting the late-night talk show since 2005 and is stepping down in December.
Corden's appointment was widely rumoured last month but has only now been confirmed by the CBS network.
His previous hosting experience includes four stints at the Brit Awards and his presenting role on the Sky panel show A League Of Their Own.
The actor's profile in the US was boosted in 2012 when he won a Tony for his role in the Broadway transfer of stage hit One Man, Two Guvnors.
He was recently seen alongside Keira Knightley in the musical romance Begin Again and has a role in big-screen musical Into the Woods, out at Christmas.
In a statement, Corden said he would do his best "to make a show America will enjoy".
