Education[edit]

Found this extra bit of biographical information regarding his education- could someone add it? "As a child, he studied drama at Jackie Palmer Stage School, as well as attending Holmer Green Senior School and the Misbourne School." http://www.contactmusic.com/info/james_corden 88.167.71.127 (talk) 10:52, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Appearances[edit]

HE WAS IN teachers —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.155.110.193 (talk) 22:59, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

He was also in Hollyoaks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.125.63.83 (talk) 22:34, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Link to fan blog[edit]

This site should be included in Corden's external link section:

James Corden Fan Site

It appears to serve as an authoritative catalog of Corden interviews, work, appearances, etc.

Since no "official" page like this exists for Corden, this entry could benefit from including this link. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.129.181.151 (talk) 02:27, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Sheridan Smith[edit]

I don't think James and Sheridan are dating anymore, at the time of the Lily Allen show where he stated it was complicated. That was more of an ad lib line to make the audience laugh at the fact that him and Lily were flirting. But unless there is no official proof that they are still dating, I think it should be removed or at least stated that they no longer date. Anyone agree? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.30.153.141 (talk) 15:53, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Not so sure - rumor lately has been they're back together. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.162.234.178 (talk) 21:47, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

LGBT?[edit]

Is James Corden a homosexual, I read that, somewhere. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lithiumdog1 (talkcontribs) 12:51, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

The section about his girlfriend suggests otherwise but he could be bisexual or the article could be tagged because he appeared in some work or production that has some LGBT notability. -- Horkana (talk) 16:51, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

Syntax[edit]

I removed this, because it wasn't printing (I assume the syntax was wrong): —Preceding unsigned comment added by Trafford09 (talkcontribs) 08:59, 19 February 2009 (UTC) me 2 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.21.167.82 (talk) 17:53, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Dob & middle name[edit]

James Cordon's birthday is the day before mine! which is the 18'th august 1977 and his middle name is KIMBERLY!!!

Fantastic Uksam88 (talk) 19:52, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
His middle name being Kimberly has been stated multiple times; is it true, or just a joke? Nietzsche 2 (talk) 03:49, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
Might not be a joke. In England Kimberley can be a man's name, though it is archaic 92.15.3.211 (talk) 12:24, 12 June 2010 (UTC).
I recently met a Canadian military veteran, a man, whose first name is Kimberley. 68.146.80.110 (talk) 01:45, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Cow ?[edit]

Any particular reason why there is a picture of a cow on the page ??? 77.97.86.125 (talk) 23:19, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

It appears to have been vandalism. I've reverted the change and warned the user. — λ (talk | contribs) 23:24, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Singing[edit]

Added a note to the article Set the Fire to the Third Bar about Corden singing as a guest vocalist when they performed at the Royal Albert Hall. The Sun also mentions karaoke at a video game launch with Take That. It is not really significant enough to add yet but if he has performs in a musical then it might be worth adding it further notes about other singing he has done. -- Horkana (talk) 16:51, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

Shuoldn't the Carpool Karaoke series be mentioned somewhere? He has a good voice. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.67.114.58 (talk) 05:19, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

Hero?[edit]

Is that really meant to be in his occupation list? 87.82.31.62 (talk) 17:49, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

DOB needs a check[edit]

Although I have no problem with the source cited, IMDb gives a DOB of June 17, 1978. Should be double-checked for accuracy 68.146.80.110 (talk) 01:46, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, both were wrong. Corrected now per BFI and the General Records Office. I have submitted a correction to IMDB. Per his memoir, his birthday is 22 August 1978. Softlavender (talk) 11:47, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned references in James Corden[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of James Corden's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "ire":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 13:44, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Is James Jewish?[edit]

Is James Corden Jewish? I ask this because he helped give over $1 Million Pounds (Equivalent of $2 Million American dollars) to the Looking After Each Other FED which is a Jewish orginization. So I was just wondering. Is he Jewish? (120.149.115.110 (talk) 13:13, 12 July 2013 (UTC))

No. All Hallow's Wraith (talk) 05:25, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

James is so 'egg and bacon' he could not be confused with being Jewish. He is a lapsed Christian.

There are many non-Jews who give to Jewish charities. Just as there are many Jews who give to Christian charities.

Change line: On 8 September 2014, Corden was chosen to succeed Craig Ferguson as the host of the The Late Late Show on CBS after Ferguson retired in December 2014.[2] to read: On 8 September 2014, Corden was chosen to succeed Craig Ferguson as the host of the The Late Late Show on CBS after Ferguson retired from hosting the show in December 2014.[2]

Craig Ferguson was explicit on many occasions (for example, http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/tv/2014/12/19/craig-ferguson-ends-decade-run-on-cbs-late-late-show-with-final-taping/20629233/) that he was not retiring from working in the business, only from hosting The Late Late Show. The above small change in language helps to avoid confusion on this point. 216.228.112.22 (talk) 19:31, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

The link to the Craig Owens wikipedia entry from the Doctor Who entry in TV filmography leads to the incorrect individual. Instead of going to the disambiguation page that mentions it being a character name from Doctor Who, it leads to an American musician. This should probably just be removed.

In the filmograhy, 'The Lady In The Van' is shown as being in post-production (the notes column). The movie has been released, so that note should be removed.

Combine sections[edit]

Why isn't Early Life and Personal Life combined into one section? The two are very short, separated by another section, and refer to his life outside of his profession. 174.100.209.41 (talk) 06:11, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

NPOV[edit]

Like many similar luvvie articles, this is basically a PR CV. JC is far from universally popular in the UK and the article doesn't reflect this at all. There's also next to nothing on his life apart from his 'achievements'. --Ef80 (talk) 23:06, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

"JC is far from universally popular in the UK"

If true, this would not surprise me. My experience of British sensibilities points to a rejection of purveyors, such as James Corden and Stephen Colbert, of what passes for humor in the US. ---Dagme (talk) 15:52, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
