James Corden Auditions to Be Ryan Reynolds' 'Deadpool' Sidekick
James Corden is already hosting The Late Late Show and the upcoming Tony Awards — but the role he really wants is in Deadpool.
The comedian debuted a sketch on Thursday night that saw him throwing out ideas for sidekicks to hopefully pique Ryan Reynolds' interest.
Some of the more creative options included The Iceman (playing on The Iceman Cometh), Rave-y Crockett (yes, Davy Crockett at a rave) and Tend-to-Kill (a homicidal octopus).
Otherwise, Corden was just dressing up as funny objects like a strawberry, a clam and a potato.
Fortunately for Corden, Reynolds did take him on as his sidekick, but with his own idea.
Watch the clip below.
