Deadline has revealed that James Corden, host of the aptly name The Late Show with James Corden, will be stepping away from his hosting duties long enough to play part in Ocean’s Eight. While Damian Lewis has already been announced as the film’s villain, Corden will be joining as a New York insurance investigator who catches wind of the ladies’ scheme.
Corden’s presence is sure to add some additional levity to the movie as the TV host and actor is best known for roles in films like Begin Again, Into the Woods, and the upcoming Emoji movie. Of course, nowadays, you can’t talk about Corden without also mentioning his wildly popular Carpool Karaoke sessions.
The female-led version of the popular Ocean’s Eleven movies, Ocean’s Eight features the likes of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter. Ocean’s Eight will be directed by Gary Ross, produced by Steven Soderbergh, and written by Ross and co-writer Olivia Milch.

Ocean’s Eight comes to theaters June 8, 2018.
