The press keeps on coming for Britain’s #1 TV property, James Corden. From The Independent, official word that Corden’s hit the big time.
A great, quick read about Corden’s ascent into Britcom royalty, capped with his coronation last week at the BAFTAs (Corden won Best Comedy Performance and his show Gavin & Stacey picked up the audience award).
The author strolls through Corden’s acting past with some great quotes from Nicholas Hytner and Alan Bennett who directed and wrote (respectively) The History Boys which featured Corden. And from Henry Normal of Baby Cow Productions, the team that produces Gavin & Stacey and also produce Cruise of The Gods, which also starred Corden.
Our own “History Boys” and Cruise of The Gods coverage is upcoming as we’re still playing catch-up on Corden’s incredibly successful career.
The article also touches on Corden’s growing sex appeal, including a mention of our friends over at chubarma.net (an American gay site and JCFS supporter), who’ve taken to referring to Corden as “my future husband.”
Also given a boost in this piece is the James Corden Birthday Mysterey. Reported here, James was born 17 June, 1978. Which puts him at 29 (the ever-growing consensus on his age) but a different month than his Wikipedia page reports (source cited as XFM London radio interview).
Does anyone know when Mr. Corden entered the world?
