Biography

James Corden was a well-known British film and television actor who had an equally successful career performing in hit plays on London's West End, as well as on Broadway. His career began in the late 1990s when, after scoring numerous film and TV guest spots, he landed his breakout role as Jamie Rymer on the British drama series "Fat Friends" (ITV 2000-2005). The success of "Fat Friends" catapulted Corden into the national spotlight in Britain, and in 2004 he received further acclaim for his role as Timms in the coming of age drama play "The History Boys." "The History Boys" would go on to become an international smash, with Corden reprising his role in the 2006 film adaptation. Corden's string of good luck continued when in 2007 he rejoined three of his "Fat Friends" co-stars in the BBC sitcom "Gavin & Stacey" (2007-2010), which he wrote with his co-star Ruth Jones. In 2011, Corden built on his initial "History Boys" stage success in the States by starring in the widely successful comedy "One Man, Two Guvnors" on Broadway. For his grueling physical comedy work in the play, Corden was awarded the 2012 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play, thus signaling that the vastly talented British actor had finally become a breakout star across the pond.
