James Corden isn't going to let Stephen Colbert have all the fun on Super Bowl Sunday.

Hours after Colbert added Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly to his lineup for Sunday's live post-game telecast, Corden announced guests for his very special Super Bowl episode.

Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick and Pitch Perfect's Adam DeVine are set to appear Sunday on The Late Late Show. This marks a reunion for Corden and Kendrick, who starred together in the big screen version of Into the Woods in 2014.

The trio join previously announced guest Elton John, who will appear with Corden on "Carpool Karaoke" — which has quickly become one of the late-night host's most beloved recurring segments.

Additionally, the show will include re-creations of classic Super Bowl commercials, a tailgate party outside of the studio and the first-ever Baby Bowl, in addition to other yet-to-be-announced surprises. Colbert offered new details on his first-ever live episode of The Late Show in a new interview with Adweek.

Although the game will be played in Santa Clara, Calif., Corden, like Colbert, is staying on home turf for Sunday's special installment. This marks the first time late-night shows have gotten the prized post-Super Bowl berth.

Super Bowl 50 airs Sunday on CBS.
