Tom Cruise & James Corden Surprise Appearance in Disney’s The Lion King

James Corden, the host of the late-late show, is leaving the air in a big way. CBS will broadcast its last hour of “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on Thursday, April 27th. Corden has hosted the television show since March 2015. CBS has added a primetime special to mark the finale.

Hollywood icon Tom Cruise will join Corden onstage for one big sketch during the primetime special. In the past, Cruise has joined “The Late Late Show” for segments, including stunt pilot training and skydiving.

In this new skit, Corden and Cruise take part in an epic musical performance during “The Lion King” at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. Corden announced the upcoming skit via social media, sharing a photo with Cruise as Pumba from Disney’s The Lion King. Sources close to Corden state that he is leaving the show by choice. CBS will air a reboot of “@Midnight” replacing the Corden-led comedy hour.
