Casting Update: James Corden

The Sun's latest casting news reports that Gavin and Stacey writer/star James Corden will appear in the new series of Doctor Who later this year. The actor was said to have been seen learning his lines on train to Cardiff, and confirmed the news when approached by a fan.

The "show insider" said:
We normally keep our guest stars under wraps but you can't hide a bloke like James. He loves coming to Wales, and it gives him a chance to meet up with Ruth Jones, who co-wrote Gavin and Stacey with him and starred as Nessa. We're just delighted to have James on board. He is a great actor and he'll be a perfect fit for the new Doctor Who.
The actor's role in the series has yet to be revealed.
