James Corden Goes Bear-Hunting

  • Cuberly

    Cute, and I’m posting this because I need some fucking levity right now.

    • barracks9

      I’ll see your levity-imbued Wookiee, and raise you a god.

      • Cuberly

        Eh, he’s pretty godlike I’ll give you that. 😉

        • Octavio

          Since when did Amy Schumer grow a beard?

          • Cuberly
          • John P.

            Looks like a Doris Day movie. I loved this guy. I had a crush on him as a child and I had no idea what it meant. And, yes, I love Octavio’s avatar!

          • Octavio

            My avatar licks you back 🙂

          • John P.

            You Maverick, you!

          • Uncle Sal

            i was a much older child and I knew perfectly well what mine meant! sigh. . .

          • Cuberly

            I think you’re right, not sure which one though.

            And yes, Garner had the same effect on me as well. (blush)

          • 2karmanot

            You are so bad O! 🙂

  • oikos

    I would love to console the guy in the white T and baseball cap by giving him somewhere to sit.

    • Octavio

      Get in line.

      • oikos

        Hey I called dibs. I’ll share my toys though.

        • Octavio

          OK. Do you have a sling?

          • oikos

            No, you bring the sling and I’ll bring the rest. Now if I can just remember where i put that riding crop.

          • Rich Farias

            You should do what I did: I mounted a pegboard to my closet door for all of my impact toys. No more rummaging through drawers, and the falls on my floggers stay nice and untangled.

          • 2karmanot

            I have a macrome one in storage somewhere. Would that do? It’s leather.

    • Cherry

      That guy was very hot!

  • BearEyes

    Funny!

  • pj

    come to pride….we dont bite

  • bkmn

    They should grin and BEAR it.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    He’s so cute I could just eat him up.

    • Cuberly

      sigh….. cute pudgy UK dudes. 🙂

  • Polterguest

    I’ve loved h since Gavyn & Stacey

  • Gustav2

    Pander Bear for votes.

  • Joe Roberts

    I adore James Corden. Wish he actually did play for our team! Just so cute.

    Do British JMG readers realize what a sensation he is over here? We all love him.

    • londonbuddy

      James took a serious amount of flack over a comedy series he did here, which was way too over indulgent, and he never properly recovered from it. I like him and am pleased his show has been such a huge success. Maybe some time away from our screens will help when he eventually returns, though i suspect it wont be for a long time. He put a broadway revival of A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum on hold to do the Lata Late Show.

      • Raisinhead

        He won huge praise for One Man, two Guv’nors here. I think he did it in New York too. He hosts awards shows. That awful movie misstep has been forgotten.

        • londonbuddy

          It was his performance in 1M2G that got him cast in Into The Woods

  • Octavio

    This is the first time I’ve seen Corden be genuinely funny. The other times he’s seemed so forced an inauthentic. I’ll give him more chances to entertain me.

    • barracks9

      I thought his appearances in Doctor Who were especially funny and touching.

      • Octavio

        I’ve never seen him do anything. But the segments of the Late, Late show I’ve seen have not impressed me. This was much better.

        • Captain Jack

          I’m glad I’m not the only one…:)

        • Chuck in PA

          Yes, one of the few times I have laughed at him. He always seems so uncomfortable and forced. In this context he is bearable.

    • Gerry Fisher

      He seems to specialize in “cute.” A little of that goes a long way.

  • Joe Roberts

    Why is LA Pride so bereft of people? It looks like a rural county fair, with the low density of attendees (until the night-time event). Not a slam — just asking. I’m only comparing it other Pride events I’ve known, which get so crowded that you can barely move.

    • danolgb

      This could have been early in the day on Saturday before things really get started. I haven’t been in a few years, but LA Pride is usually packed.

    • peterparker

      Because the festival area where this was filmed charges upwards of $35 per person PER DAY to enter that area. Compare with other cities where there are reasonable suggested donations. I never go to the festival because A) it isn’t fun, B) it doesn’t interest me, and C) I find it offensive that they gouge members of the community who might be unable to pay the price of admission.

  • Lakeview Bob

    He is too cute to be real. Love him.

  • Rick

    Every time I click on this video it opens a new page with that Janet Porter photo.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Without removing his top, i’m still not sure he can be a bear.

    • Rich Farias
      • bambinoitaliano

        Yeah I remember now. He’s got no hair so he ain’t no bear. What would that makes him?

        • Rich Farias

          Still a bear, albeit more of a cub.

          • bambinoitaliano

            A cub with dermatophytosis.

        • Gerry Fisher

          Fur is optional though preferable. They like to let people self identify in the bear community.

  • KCMC

    levity and winners

  • JoeyKY

    I hate him. He’s not funny. Why do people watch his show? He’s terrible.

    • Rich Farias

      De gustibus non est disputandum, so stop moaning and just don’t watch.

    • Nelson Kerr

      I watch because i find his joyous humility charming, and a change for the better in late night

      • Gerry Fisher

        Joyous humility is a good description, IMO.

  • Strepsi

    Whatn a delightfully refreshing change from the sniggeringly homophobic straight men who have ruled late night forever~!

  • TreGibbs

    Cute !! Love bears…

  • Chuck in PA

    What would be great is if James Corden had Take That or Robbie Williams perform on his show. Here’s James imitating Gary Barlow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTr-LyZlDXU

  • Chuck in PA

    OMG. If only The Late Late Show was more like this video where James takes the back seat and isn’t playing the dancing bear .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QO9GC1OP4c8

  • Gerry Fisher

    I loved the look of delight on his face when he realized he was too skinny to be called bear. 🙂 Straight bears and cubs need ego boosts and hugs, too! 🙂

  • Blobby

    James Corden is too good for late night. I mean, he’s sooooo much better than Fallon. Or Myers. I hope he really makes it.
