NEW YORK (AP) — James Corden will be staying up late for real to host the Tony Awards.
The host of CBS’s “The Late Late Show” will make his debut as the emcee June 12 at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.
The British comedian and actor has been on Broadway twice and won a Tony in 2012 as best leading actor in a play for “One Man, Two Guvnors.”
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be hosting the Tony Awards. Both times I’ve worked on Broadway have been amongst the happiest times of my professional life. I consider it a huge honor to be asked to host such an incredible night. It’s gonna be fun, I can’t wait to dust off my tap shoes!” said Corden in a statement.
