Look at this guy trying to get some positive PR out of this depressing news.
He's a big West Ham fan IIRC so I don't doubt he is being genuine.

Still a massive prick though, they can both go hand in hand.

Great. Already depressed about the Super League and now I've agreed with something Cordon has said.

What’s the reason he’s so hated on here? Genuine question.
The only way this is actually a genuine question is if you have absolutely no idea who he is. In which case do your damned hardest to that it this way.

He's known for being an utter, utter cnut to people in real life. He's a diva celebrity, the type who throws phones at people when he gets annoyed. Complete and utter twat.
Worse still, a diva celeb with no discernible talent for acting or comedy or tv hosting.

My theory is everyone who hates him has kids because i used to wonder this, now I've come to realise he voices everything and it's annoying when your kid makes you watch it every other day.

I don't have kids so I guess this could make sense.

I still feel like I'm missing out on a Caf 'in' joke whenever I come into this thread.

I can't say I've seen much with Corden recently but he was great in Gavin and Stacey. I thought his comedy sketches were funny too back in the day with England and Beckham etc. Can't say I know enough about his personal life to know if he's actually a cnut though.

I've said it before but I'll say it again. I've worked with this cnut. Many times. He's a knob of the highest order. Hate him.

That’s your problem right there…

What do Jeremy Clarkson, Jeremy Crobyn and James Cordon have in common?

They're all massive cnuts.

Yeah but why?
You'll write a script that feeds into a bigger campaign... He'll insist you use his revised script because it's funnier. Then he'll refused to read your script because he wants to only do his version.

He'll not sign off on a poster for league of their own because he looks fat compared to Redknapp, Flintoff and the other guy. He insists you have to make him look thinner.

He'll chime in a day before the promotional ad for his show goes to air because he decided he doesn't like the music used (despite being ok with it 3 weeks ago), now you're working all night to edit it from scratch.

Etc etc etc

He's a weird one. I agree Gavin and Stacey was very good and he was one of the writers. Smithy was a good character with some great lines. Probably an easy, hammy kind of character to play but his acting was decent enough.

I was also watching some old League of their Own episodes the other day and he's alright in that. Bit annoying at times but generally does an alright job for the format.

But in everything else I've seen him he's just a massive bellend. I can't figure out at all how he's landed himself a huge gig in American TV. There are some presenters who are bellends but they can at least conduct a good interview, or do a bit that isn't complete cringe occasionally. But Corden is a painfully cringeworthy interviewer and presenter, comes across as a fake kiss ass who is desperate to promote himself and network with celebrities. I can't fathom how or why he's getting this kind of work.

My best guess is when he was a kid and in that stage play that I forget the name of, he was diddled by some producers or execs and he's used that as leverage to land himself bigger gigs ever since.*

*only half joking

Even in the Ant & Dec thing he came across as a bit of a diva to be fair.
