On “The Late Late Show” last night, host James Corden decided to mix things up and take a break from his busy schedule, filled with near-constant Carpool Karaoke segments that occasionally feature shirtless members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, to take over an ArcLight movie theater for a day. In the latest installment of his “Take a Break” segment, Corden stopped by Hollywood’s ArcLight Cinemas to try his hand at working at a movie theater. He handed out tickets, sold concessions, and even delivered ArcLight’s patented pre-movie introduction, which ended up devolving into Corden describing his full life story to a bored audience and him going row by row to make sure everyone’s cell phones are turned off.
But the highlight of the segment is when Corden and another employee recreate the scene from Baz Luhrmann’s “Romeo + Juliet,” his modern adaptation starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes, where Romeo and Juliet fall in love by gazing at each other through an aquarium. Watch the segment in full below.
Corden took over for long-time “Late Late Show” host Craig Ferguson in March of last year. He recently hosted this year’s Tony Awards, in which he gave a moving tribute to the victims of the Orlando in the show’s opening remarks.
“The Late Late Show” airs weeknights at 12:37am only on CBS.
