Subject: James Corden to host Tony Awards

Written By: Philip Eno on 02/02/16 at 12:15 pm

Britain's James Corden is to host this year's Tony Awards, Broadway theatre's biggest and starriest night.

The 12 June event will see the 37-year-old actor return to New York's Beacon Theatre, where he won the Tony for best leading actor in a play in 2012 for his performance in One Man, Two Guvnors.

Since then, he has had more success as the host of CBS's The Late Late Show.

The organisers of the Tonys called him "the ideal choice" to host what they said would be an "unforgettable show".

"James is one of those rare performers whose gifts translate perfectly to both the Broadway stage and the television screen," said Charlotte St Martin, president of the Broadway League, and Heather Hitchens, president of the American Theatre Wing, in a statement.

"The last time he was at the Tonys, he went home with one. We think he'll have even more fun as host."
