James Corden Still Thinks He'll Get Fired from 'The Late Late Show'

James Corden Still Thinks He'll Get Fired from 'The Late Late Show'
Hi,

James

. Hi. It seems like you walked, and then you decided that you were going too slow, and then you sped up to run to the chair. That's my life. Yes. That's my life, mostly. I go, oh, no, I'm doing this too slowly. I have to-- Really? --just yeah, get there quicker. It's not that long of a walk. When I did your

show

, which was really fun, by the way-- I recently did your

show

-- and it's a long walk, and it's down steps, which is awkward. Have you thought of changing

that? Well, no, because what we want to do is have a

show

where we wanted our

show

-- when we started our

show

, we were like how can we be different? And we were like, everybody walks from a curtain. Let's just have them come through the audience so that we're all in it together. That's what we do. I see. OK. OK. No, I think it's a great idea. And then the audience gets so excited because, you know, you get to, like, high five them on the way down and stuff. Yeah, well,
that's why we did it, just to try and be a little different in whatever way we could. I like it. And then you sit with another guest, and it's fun, because you interact together. It was great. Yeah. Well, that's-- again, same thing. We were like, oh, well, how can we just stand out in some way in the mass of, like,

show

s that are on in the middle of the night? Do you know what I mean? Why did we pick that picture to

show

of me? Why-- why is that? You look great. Yeah, well,
clearly, I'm doing a fish thing, but I don't know why. Well, I can't remember, but you were a terrific guest. We really felt like-- and I mean this. I don't mean this in any way sort of sycophantically. I genuinely felt like it was a real thing for our

show

to have somebody who we all just kind of respect for so long. And we've only been on the air about four years. And for you to come by our

show

meant a great deal to everybody. Oh,

James

, that's sweet. I mean it. I mean

it. It's like it's a thing. It's a thing for us. It is. Well, thank you. Well, I think that you're unbelievably talented. I mean, so you've been on four years. It'll be four years in March. And before that, like, I don't think-- like, I wasn't aware of you, because you were living in London, and you were doing plays, a lot of theater. And I saw you sing, and dance, and do-- I was like, oh, my god, this guy is amazing. So I thought you do very, very well right
away. Did you think the

show

would be received that-- Oh, god, no. No. No, I thought-- no, I wouldn't-- we came here, my wife and I, our son was three, our daughter was 12 weeks when we moved here. And I said to my wife-- I was like, we're not buying anything. We rented furniture. We rented a couch, everything in our house. Because I was like, I'm going to get

fired

. And the only thing worse than getting

fired

will be getting

fired

and then left with a couch that we've got to get
rid of somehow, because we'll be on the first flight back to London, just going, well, that was a disaster. So I genuinely meant that. It was completely real. When did you start buying things? At what point did you realize, oh, the

show

's doing very well? About a year ago. No. No. Well, we bought a house about a year ago. And then it was like, OK, if we bought a house, we should probably buy a couch. And buy furniture, yeah. And so you've been on four years. And then how many more

years do you have on your contract? About a year and a half. And do you think you'll renew, or do you want to do other things? I don't know. It might not be my choice. I'm not sure. I

still

might get

fired

. I think that every day. That's what I mean. I came in slow. And I thought, if I come in slow, they might go, oh, that's the wrong guy. So if I speed to the seat, I'll be sat down, and then it'll be too awkward. I see. So I don't know. I'm not sure. I've
no idea how long we'll do it for. We'll see. We'll see how it goes. And you're going back to London to be in Cats, the movie, right? Yes, I'm doing the film of the musical, Cats. That's amazing. And it's a lot of people. Who's in Cats? It's Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Idris Elba, Rebel Wilson, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, and then me. So you may be

fired

. Yeah, yeah. I mean, I go tomorrow. I might be back here by Saturday. I fly tomorrow night to start filming
it. Wow, that's amazing. And have you seen Cats, like, a lot? Is it pretty much sticking to the play? Yes, kind of. It's

still

people being cats. Yeah. And how have you prepared for that? Well, I'm very much-- I'm like Daniel Day Lewis. I immerse the character. You know what I mean? So what have you done? I've just been living as a cat. I don't use the bathroom. I have a litter tray. And then I just-- the whole time. That's it. I see. That's been me the whole
time. I can't wait to see the movie. Yeah. Well, I don't know if it'll get better than what I just did there. That's probably-- They could take that and use it, because that was good. Yeah, right. Oh, yeah. I wish I had a little laser thing. Because I would make you run around. All right. Oh. No, I don't have one. No? No. But that's how in it I am. Wow, you really-- You said there was one. And I thought they can add it in post. OK. Oh, my god. Oh, I love you. All right,
we'll be right back. Hi, I'm Andy.
