While James Corden‘s most viral contribution to late night television is undoubtedly Carpool Karaoke, which will be getting its very own series soon on Apple Music, he’s also known for having some fun recreating the movies of some of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
The Late Late Show has seen James Corden team up with the likes of Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Tom Cruise and Arnold Schwarzenegger to deliver cheap and quick recreations of their most iconic roles. But no actor who has taken on the role call challenge has had quite as expansive a body of work as Samuel L. Jackson. Even in 11 minutes, they don’t even come close to recreation all of Samuel L. Jackson’s movies, but they did remember to include his bit part in GoodFellas, so that’s gotta be worth something.

Even if you’re not a regular viewer of The Late Late Show on CBS with host James Corden, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of his popular, consistently viral segment known as Carpool Karaoke. In the recurring segment, James Corden hops in a car with a famous celebrity, usually a chart-topping singer but sometimes just another figure in pop culture, and they cruise around Los Angeles jamming out to an assortment of songs in the car, just like you and me. This year, that segment gets its own series.
Carpool Karaoke: The Series will be the first programming endeavor for Apple as they start to expand into original programming. Last night the first trailer debuted in front of the perfect audience during the Grammys, which were hosted by James Corden, and featured a few of the famous faces that he’s shared a ride with before. The trailer shows that Corden won’t be hosting every episode, but there’s quite a cavalcade of talent from across the board to make up for it.

James Corden has plenty of fun with “Carpool Karaoke” over on The Late Late Show at CBS. In fact, people love it so much that Apple Music ordered an entire TV series based on the premise. However, my personal favorite gag of James Corden’s is when he gets a big movie star to reenact their entire filmography in just a few minutes. Tom Hanks did it in eight minutes, Matt Damon did it in seven minutes and Arnold Schwarzenegger did it in six minutes. Now it’s Tom Cruise‘s turn, and this one takes the longest yet.
Watch almost all the Tom Cruise movies reenacted in just 9 minutes after the jump, and there just might be a cameo from one of Tom Cruise’s former co-stars. Read More »

Stranger Things has given way to a great many conspiracy theories, but perhaps none more convincing than “Steve is really the father of Jean-Ralphio from Parks & Recreation.” The evidence is incontrovertible: the two guys kind of look alike, and both characters hail from Indiana, and… actually, that’s about it. Okay, so maybe it’s not all that airtight after all. But Ben Schwartz (a.k.a. Jean-Ralphio) and Joe Keery (a.k.a. Steve) are more than happy to run with it, and that’s what matters.
Earlier this week we oohed and ahhed over a bunch of snapshots of father and son being reunited thanks to The Late Late Show With James Corden, and now there’s video footage of their special encounter — including the moment they realized that, yes, they are related after all. Read More »
