James Corden Tonys Host 2016

James Corden to Host Tony Awards

Who’s up for a Broadway-themed round of Carpool Karaoke?

Late Late Show host James Corden will host the 70th annual Tony Awards this June, CBS announced Tuesday.

Corden, a Tony winner himself for One Man, Two Guvnors in 2012, will preside over the live theater-awards telecast on Sunday, June 12 (8/7c.)

“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!” Corden said via statement.

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy! I am so glad to see good things happening for him! He is the epitome of an entertainer! Genuine and not a sycophant like Fallon appears to be.
