British actor James Corden couldn't believe his luck when he was invited to audition for a movie starring his comic idol Jack Black
James Corden was a "wreck" when he auditioned to appear in a movie alongside Jack Black.
The British star was astounded when he was asked to try out for a role in a remake of 'Gulliver's Travels', and admits he struggled to keep his composure while he was meeting movie bosses.
He said: "I've always been a massive fan of Jack Black's. I couldn't believe it when I was asked to go to Los Angeles to read for a part in his new movie. I might have looked normal on the outside but inside I was a wreck.
"I'm so excited I'll be working with him!"
The 30-year-old star added one of his highlights of last year was the success of 'Gavin and Stacey' - the comedy UK TV series he writes and stars in - in the US.
He explained: "In the Los Angeles Times there was a top 10 of best TV moments - 'Gavin and Stacey' was number two, and the American election was number one. I couldn't believe it!"
