The news that the popular musical Wicked has been turned into a movie has been widely welcomed. But fans hope James Corden won’t be seen in it. on the site change.org A petition began calling for Corden not to be cast. The description reads: “James Corden should have nothing in any way to do with the production of Wikid.” Many people seem to share this view. At the time of writing, 42,155 people have already signed the petition, with the ultimate goal being 50,000 .
James Corden is best known as a talk show host—hosting The Late Late Show—but he’s starred in nearly every musical in recent years. Sometimes he is successful, as in Into The Woods, but other times his acting performance can count on lower acclaim. For example, Vanity Fair called his role in “Prom” an “insult” and the musical “Cats” was a failure across the board. rumors circulating Corden is not quite as empathetic as he presents himself. “Believe me: James Corden is an idiot,” one of them opened up on social media. “You’ll never meet a good comedian who doesn’t mean deep down, which is almost essential if you want to make fun of others. James wants to present himself as a nice person for the family, but nothing could be further from the truth.”
Just to be clear, Corden has not been selected for Wicked at all at the moment.
