As James Corden undergoes the final preparations before making his debut as the host of The Late Late Show on Monday night, he can at least be assured he's made one "perfect" choice.
Corden tells PEOPLE that he'd already made his wish to have Tom Hanks as a guest known during a press tour back in December: "Someone showed me a video from the Into the Woods junket ... and I'm saying, 'Tom Hanks. I just think he's the perfect movie star.' "
Corden, 36, continues, "I'm so just overjoyed that he is going to be the first person that I get to talk to on the show. I just adore him and am such a fan."

"It's crazy. I'm so fortunate to have been doing this for so many years," Walters tells PEOPLE of hosting the annual special at the age of 85. "I would've had to have been out of my mind to think that would happen."
Her past lists have been filled with names ranging from celebrities (like Tom Hanks and Barbra Streisand) to politicians (like Madeleine Albright and Hillary Rodham Clinton) to those changing the world (like Mother Teresa and Steve Jobs).
