Stormageddon’s Dad Joins Into The Woods Cast

Today in Awesome


Ok, so he’s more than just Stormageddon’s dad. British actor James Corden has been added to the big-screen musical Into the Woods. Who will he be playing?

“Disney’s big-screen adaptation of the beloved Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods has found its Baker,” writes The Hollywood Reporter. “British actor James Corden — who won a Tony last year for his work in Broadway’s One Man, Two Guvnors — has been cast in the lead role of the married bread maker who longs for a baby after a spell of barrenness is placed on his wife by the witch next door, a Disney casting notice confirms.”

I just know I’ll sit there the entire time yelling, “BUT CRAIG! YOU ALREADY HAVE A BABY. HE IS THE DARK LORD OF ALL!”

The film is being directed by Rob Marshall and Corden will join actors and Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp, already anounced as the Witch and the Wolf respectively.
