I always thought I’d do it for five years and then leave, and then I stayed on. I’ve been thinking about it for a long time, thinking whether there might be one more adventure."

"There are still some other things that I feel I want to do," Corden said while talking about his career after his long stint at the CBS show will soon come to an end. The host adds, "There are some [stories] I’d like to tell. I'd like to see if I’m capable of it. The fact that it’s terrifying is the reason to do it." About his plans to return to his native, London, the Tony-winning actor says the idea is under consideration.
Corden, who is married to Julia Carey and is a doting father to their three children, explains, "It's something we think about, and we talk about a lot, but we haven’t made a decision on that yet. That’s the life side of things which we’ll figure out."The Into the Woods actor asserts that he and his family have never once taken their life in L.A for granted.
