Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Armitage, who is perhaps best known for his roles across Alice Through the Looking Glass and Peter Jackson’s Hobbit franchise, will play a mystery character in next year’s female-led crime caper. How exactly the actor’s newcomer fits into proceedings is up for question, though given the stacked ensemble cast, we’re inclined to believe the Brit will hold a small supporting role opposite Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett and their merry band of crooks.
Those two leading ladies will anchor Ocean’s Eight as a pair of master criminals, presiding over an ensemble that includes Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. Their mission? Staging a heist that involves stealing an invaluable »

While the main players in Warner Bros.' all-female reboot of Ocean's 11 have been set for quite some time, the production keeps adding new cast members. Today we have a report that late night talk show host James Corden has signed on for a supporting role, while yesterday, Katie Holmes was spotted on set. Her casting was never announced or confirmed by the studio, but the actress was seen walking onto the set, and then she was seen leaving a makeup trailer.
The Daily Mail reports that the production filmed at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in Manhattan on Tuesday, which could actually confirm some longstanding plot rumors. While the studio has not issued any plot details at this time, the story reportedly revolves around Sandra Bullock's character, the con-artist sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean from Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's trilogy who puts a team of »
While most late-night personalities let their film and TV careers fall by the wayside once they get their hosting gig, James Corden has been an exception to that trend. Despite churning out well over a hundred episodes of The Late Late Show every year, the actor has still managed to take on roles in such past and future projects as Trolls, The Emoji Movie and Peter Rabbit. Now, however, you can add Ocean’s Eight to the list, as Deadline reports that he has joined the cast of the all-female Gary Ross-directed heist comedy.
In the film, which is a spin-off of Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy, Corden will play an insurance investigator “who grows suspicious” of the group of ladies attempting to pull off a massive heist; like most of his other film appearances, it will be a supporting role.

It looks like another man is going to stink up the set of Gary Ross’ Ocean’s Eight, as Deadline is reporting that Late Late Show host James Corden has joined the cast of the ostensibly female-led spin-off of Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s movies. Matt Damon and Damian Lewis will be in the film as well, with Damon presumably playing the same character he played in the other Ocean’s movies, and Lewis playing the new movie’s villain. Deadline says Corden will be “an insurance investigator” who becomes suspicious of Sandra Bullock and her crew, adding that it will be “a good part” and “a good opportunity to scout for future Carpool Karaoke candidates.”

Fresh off his supporting role in DreamWorks animation Trolls, The Late Late Show host James Corden has landed a role in Ocean’s Eight, the Gary Ross-directed crime caper headed up by Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett.
Deadline has the scoop, revealing that Corden will play the part of an insurance investigator assigned to keep a close eye on Bullock and her merry band of crooks. Angled as more of a continuation of Steven Soderbergh’s heist saga than an out-and-out reboot, we understand that Bullock and Blanchett anchor the all-star cast as two master thieves – not unlike George Clooney and Brad Pitt’s respective characters, then – who place their proverbial crosshairs on an invaluable necklace on display at New York’s Met Ball.
