James Corden would like a stab at a crim
JAMES CORDEN has revealed his dream acting role — and it’s not what you might expect.
The acclaimed One Man, Two Guvnors actor-turned-Late Late Show host has long harboured a desire to play a ‘transvestite criminal’, apparently.
‘If I could choose any role,’ he told The Sun, ‘there’s a musical which is not beloved at all — a Kander and Ebb musical called Kiss Of The Spider Woman — where there’s a character called Melin who is a transvestite criminal in prison, and it’s just a role I’ve always loved.’
‘I watched it when I was like, 14, I cried my eyes out,’ he added.
‘It’s got some brilliant songs. I’d love a stab at that.’
