NEW YORK (AP) — Before he begins his own late-night show, James Corden is paying a visit to David Letterman.
Corden is replacing Craig Ferguson next year on "The Late Late Show," the CBS late-night program that immediately follows Letterman on the schedule. Ferguson is signing off on Dec. 19, and Corden makes his debut on March 9.
Corden's first appearance on the "Late Show" is scheduled this Friday. The Tony Award-winning actor has some product to promote besides his upcoming program, since he's featured in the new film "Into the Woods," opening on Christmas Day.
Television producer Norman Lear and musicians TV on the Radio will also be on Letterman on Friday.
