The host of The Late Late Show James Corden has a new gig: musician impersonator. In a commercial for Apple Music which premiered during the Emmys on Sunday (Sept. 18), Corden is depicted in a meeting with Apple executives Jimmy Iovine, Eddy Cue and Bozoma Saint John to pitch new ways to promote the music streaming service.
