James Corden is cozying up to the competition: The host of CBS’ The Late Late Show will sit on the other side of the desk as a guest on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday, June 8.
Corden, who will be in New York to host the Tony Awards on June 12, has made no secret of his fondness for his time slot rival, who he says has been supportive from the get-go. “Books have been written about late-night wars, and people talk about what a competitive environment it all is, but I must say it’s been such a relief to join the ranks of such a lovely and welcoming group of hosts,” he wrote in EW earlier this year. “When it leaked that I would be taking over this show, the first email I got was from Seth Meyers, saying, ‘Oh my God, this is going to be great!’”
Corden also noted that he and Meyers email rather frequently, “mostly because we support the same soccer team.”
This will be Corden’s second time on Meyers’ show: He previously visited in December of 2014, a few months before assuming the reins of The Late Late Show.
