Who knew James Corden was such a Bridget Jones mega fan?

During the Wednesday episode of the British funnyman's Late Late Show, the host tried out his hand at auditioning for a chance to act alongside Bridget Jones's Baby stars Renée Zellweger and Patrick Dempsey—and hilarity ensued.

With Bridget Jones's Diary star Hugh Grant not returning for the third film, a very excited Corden is brought in to try auditioning for the role of the "new, charismatic British lead," and the comedian perhaps goes a little too full British while trying to emulate Bridget Jones's former love interest. Somehow, a cockney accent and a chimney sweeper's outfit get thrown in the mix, as well as Sherlock Holmes's famous detective hat and pipe. That's when Harry Potter, Queen Elizabeth, and a whole slew of other British characters make their appearance!

As Zellweger and the director start to seriously question their decision to have a second British lead in the film, Patrick Dempsey shows up to save the day.
