Why does ‘Carpool Karaoke”s James Corden star in every movie musical?
James Corden keeps appearing in musicals. It’s not that surprising honestly. Between the success of Carpool Karaoke amongst other musical numbers that he does on The Late Late Show with James Corden, it makes sense that he would appear in such things, you know? But honestly, it may be getting a little ridiculous. Sure, Anna Kendrick has appeared in a lot of musical movies, but she’s also done other things as well.
Yet, here is James Corden again in Amazon’s Cinderella. Fans are already seeing his appearance as a way to predict that the upcoming movie will be awful. Sure, singing Carpool Karaoke is well & good, but he doesn’t have to act in that segment, you know? Hollywood, you do know that you don’t need to let him on set when he shows up to one of these things, right? Right?

What does it mean?
Herald of a negative score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Stop putting James Corden in movies. We're all tired of wondering who has been bribed this time.

Is it every single one?
Well . . . he didn’t show up in In the Heights. Did he? Or did we block it out?
Literally any new musical movie with a comic relief, slightly obnoxious character:

Are the casting directors just tired?
This was going bad but then James Corden showed up and it then it got worse https://t.co/R7r8XkNQSG

Like we knew it was going to be bad . . .
It just immediately tanks further.
if i had a nickel for every time james corden got cast as an anthropomorphic animal in a movie musical, i'd have two nickels. which isn't a lot, but it's weird that it's happened twice

Why does it feel like it happened more?
It was only twice?
What kind of blackmail does James Corden have on Hollywood that he keeps getting cast in acting roles. https://t.co/BvpXW6XUuZ

It’s a source of fascination at this point
It has to be something really bad or good. Depends.
