Let no one question James Corden’s commitment to his craft. Mounting a “Crosswalk the Musical” version of “Les Miserables” ― in Paris, no less ― for “The Late Late Show” Wednesday, the host took on the role of the tragic prostitute Fantine.
He brilliantly sang “I Dreamed a Dream” and stopped traffic in the hair-chopping scene.
The man is a true thespian who must be the character. So he also engaged in Fantine’s trade, soliciting commuters at a Paris subway entrance.
What an artist.
Watch “Les Miserables” above and say oui to a production bold enough to replace swords with baguettes.
