James Corden + Dominic Cooper at Premiere of The Devil’s Double

Old pals James Corden and Dominic Cooper enjoy each other’s company at the premiere of Cooper’s new film The Devil’s Double (click through for pics).

The pair used to room together before James and Cooper pal Julia Carey got engaged last year. Their friendship is reported to have started while both starred in The History Boys.

It’s rumored that Cooper is in the running along with Mat Horne for role of Best Man in Corden’s upcoming nuptials. Corden + Horne know each other, of course, from the sketch comedy show Horne & Corden as well as the more famous, Gavin & Stacey.

Baby Corden Arrives

James Corden and fiancee Julia Carey welcomed their new baby this Tuesday (click through for pics of the couple baby shopping). The 7lbs 12 oz boy has yet-to-be-named, but news sources report that mother and child are “doing well” and recovering at Portland Hospital.

According to sources, Corden is worried about continuing the family tradition and giving his son the middle name “Kimberly.” And it is this hesitation that has delayed the naming.

CONGRATULATIONS JAMES + JULIA.

2011 BRIT Awards Recap

While we’ve not been as post-heavy this BRIT Awards, we didn’t sit on our laurels too much – we’ve got this recap of the James Corden-hosted music awards show.

NO GERVAIS

Even before the show, Corden was putting distance between his vision for the BRITs and the recent Ricky Gervais-style hosting of the US Golden Globes. Said Corden:

I’m not going to go down the Ricky Gervais road because, well, you can’t in that room, anyway – there’s a big difference between the 02 and the dining room in the Beverly Hilton,” he told the Daily Mirror.

Basically, I want to host the Brits with as much warmth and sensitivity as possible. Fewer gags.

Mostly I’ve been following guidance from the producers. They’re encouraging a positive, upbeat, interesting show as opposed to anything particularly risque.” (SOURCE: Press Association; “Corden: I won’t pull a Gervais; 17 Feb 2011)

THE PEEPHOLE

Rumor was that Corden’s backstage antics included a self-made peephole into the adjoining dressing room for pop-superstar Rihanna. Corden denies the bit – or at least the motivation.

CHARITY

Corden has generously donated his £50k fee for hosting the Brits to Comic Relief (a charity he’s been frequently supportive of in the past). Kudos James. Or, as The Sun puts it: “That’s a really generous gesture and a great one-finger salute to those who have criticised his selection as the master of ceremonies.” (SOURCE: The Sun; Rude Boy Corden; Smart, Gordon; 17 Feb 2011)

EVERYTHING ELSE

Two great interviews with Corden leading up to the show. First up, a piece in The Mirror where James grants insight into his hosting style (see not Gervais above), his nerves – “I’m as nervous as I’ve ever been, in my life, ever” – and his impending fatherhood with fiance Julia Carey. Says Corden:

“I feel the same about fatherhood as I do about the Brits – incredibly excited and terrified at the same time. Whenever I get nervous, though, I think of the amount of people who have told me it’s the best thing in the world. I reckon that that many people can’t be wrong.

“We don’t know whether we’re having a boy or girl. We want it to be a surprise and I’m really not bothered either way. I’d be so happy with a boy or a girl, I really would.”

Talking of Jules, he adds: “The best thing about meeting someone who’s really special is that they don’t try to change you at all. I just feel happier, really – happier than I have done ever.” (SOURCE: The Mirror; “Brits host James Corden’s fear and joy at impending fatherhood; Moodie, Clemmie; 17 Feb 2011)

Next, The Telegraph has a video interview of James pre-show. Click-through and watch.
