James Corden & David Beckham Go Head-To-Head In Audition For James Bond

With speculation rife over who will take the reins – or if Daniel Craig will return for one last hurrah – as British spy James Bond, audiences needed something to tide them over until either option was confirmed.

Late Late Show host James Corden and footballing icon David Beckham appear in this skit as two rival celebrities determined to be cast as the globe-trotting superspy.

Corden and Beckham take it back to some classic British comedy, having some decent stabs at each other while re-enacting typical scenes from the franchise.

It’s not the first time the two friends have appeared in a comedy scene together, the most memorable being the recreation of Beckham’s underwear photoshoot two years back.
