The Late Late Show

  • TV Show

International superstars? Late night talk show host? No. As One Direction and James Corden proved on Thursday night, their lives have all been leading to one thing—dodgeball.

Corden brought Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan to a local gym to play three rounds of dodgeball. As the old adage goes: If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball. And if you can become worldwide pop stars… well, that doesn’t really apply here.

Corden acts as a coach and mentor to the other members of Corden’s Angels as they prep to take on the Ball Busters in a best-of-three match. But even with the Late Late Show host as their guide, the Angels have some stiff competition ahead of them.

Watch the video below to find out if they win and move on to a career in dodgeball, or if the One Direction members should go back to their side jobs as musicians.
