NEW YORK (AP) — James Corden will have some big names helping him hand out Tony Awards: Oprah Winfrey, Cate Blanchett, Carole King, Audra McDonald, Saoirse Ronan, Patina Miller and Nathan Lane have signed up to help present.

Corden, a Tony-winner and the host of CBS’s “The Late Late Show” will make his debut as the emcee June 12 at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. It will be televised on CBS starting at 8 p.m. E.S.T.

Comedy god Steve Martin and Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Edie Brickell will also help present. The pair is up for a Tony as the writers of the musical “Bright Star,” a complex love story set against the American South.
