James Corden Scores Chris Martin for ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Road Trip
Actor and chat show host James Corden is taking his ‘Carpool Karaoke’ TV skit on the road after scoring his musical hero Chris Martin as a passenger. The Late Late Show host’s frequent skit, in which he and a special guest sing along to hits while driving around Los Angeles or London in a car, has landed him a spot with Adele, Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber in recent weeks and he has Sir Elton John lined up for a special show after the Super Bowl next month.
But Corden is more excited about the fact the singer of his favorite band Coldplay has agreed to join him for a road trip. “It’s more of a road trip than it is a Carpool in many ways,” the Into The Woods star told EW. “I’m such a fan of his (Martin). I’m a fan of that band – they mean the world to me. It was very funny. He brought a keyboard over, and it involved an overnight stay. It was fun.” The odd couple’s carpool get together, set to air on February 1, will reportedly feature a tribute to late rock icon David Bowie.
