James Corden Is Now Super Rich and This Is Why He Deserves Every Cent
If you have been hearing a lot about James Corden recently and how he has become one of the most successful talk show hosts of this decade, then that’s because the world cannot stop discussing the speed with which Corden has climbed the ladder and become so successful.
Of course, it has taken him a considerable number of years full of continuous hard work and dedication to reach this level of success, but the net worth he has managed to accumulate over time is certainly very impressive.
According to one estimate which was made back in 2018, Corden was valued at around $12 million, which is shocking since he does not come from a millionaire family background and hence all this money has come from his personal earnings. Let’s go back and retrace his career to see how he has managed to achieve all this success.
Starting All The Way Back In 1996
While it can be said that Corden had been dreaming of becoming a superstar and maybe had also worked here and there before this, but it was back in 1996 that he kicked off his career as a comedian by co-writing as well as co-creating a BBC show called Gavin & Stacey, in which he also acted. His talent became visible to other show creators as well, and soon Corden started appearing in small roles on many other shows as well, such as Doctor Who and Vampire Killers.
A Singer And An Actor
Corden soon realized that he had many talents, and singing was one of them. Soon, he found himself working in plays, most noticeably in One Man, Two Guvnors, which also earned him the prestigious Tony Award for his flawless performance.
Receiving this accolade helped Corden earn the trust of directors in Hollywood, which is perhaps what helped him secure a role in Begin Again, a film that also starred some of Hollywood A-list stars such as Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley.
Hired By CBS
Such a multi-talented star was exactly what the network CBS had been looking for to host The Late Late Show back in 2015, and thankfully Corden agreed to do it. As expected, Corden brought his own flair to the show and capitalized on his strengths.
For example, he started a new segment called Carpool Karaoke which has been a huge success, not only because it’s extremely entertaining, but also because Corden is authentically involved in the segment as he loves to sing.
According to reports, Corden currently has a contract with CBS that has been renewed till 2020, with the extension of two years bringing him an additional $3.9 million. He is constantly gaining fans around the world, and we can safely expect him to command an even higher price from CBS when his contract is up for renewal in 2020. Although there is always a chance that his contract is not renewed by the network, however, considering the extreme fame that he currently enjoys, we doubt Corden would be taken off the air anytime soon.
