Doctor Who guest star to be the new host...
As you likely recall, Craig Ferguson announced earlier this year that he would be departing from his gig as the host of The Late Late Show. CBS has now found their new host and he's someone that genre TV fans may recognize. According to The Wrap, UK comedian James Cordon will take over for Ferguson next April.
Cordon's most recent credit is in Begin Again, which is currently in theaters. He is perhaps best known as Craig Owens, the Eleventh Doctor's "flatmate" in Doctor Who whose baby Alfie prefers the name Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All (according to the Doctor, anyway). He also created the TV series The Wrong Mans, which he also starred in, and has a role in the upcoming adaptation of the fairy tale-themed musical Into The Woods.
