  • The careful tuna splenomegaly identify because hook perioperaively roll on a frantic range. automatic, painful trowel

  • Jesus loves you 🥖🎊🏰

  • did u kidnapped one direction already?

  • Day 24 of asking James Corden to do a carpool karaoke with Louis Tomlinson since he won’t kidnap 1D and reunite them to make our year better 😽

  • He's a good actor. Black Monday is a pretty good show. Can't wait to see him in the next Space Jam.

  • Stephen Colbert beat Barack at wastepaper basketball. And then he beat Michelle when she tried to reclaim the title.

  • first bass lesson was from RON CARTER!!??!! WOW!!

  • Okay

  • Everybody go watch Black Monday seriously it's so good

  • As a Manchester City fan I love Mr. Cheadle's sky blue suit. He is one of those actors where, you start watching a movie and see him and think ' this will be good Don Cheadle is in it '

  • 👏❤

  • Apartheid Israel killed 75 children just in May 2021! Being anti-Israel(Zionism)has nothing to do with #antisemitism in fact this is the biggest misconception Israel spreads to continue it's terroristic ideologies&war crimes so if ppl attack&criticize, they r accused of being anti-Semitic! #Playingthevictim #IsraeliCrimes #Palestine

  • Day 3 of asking James to tell all the boys to do carpool secretly kidnap them, make them perform night changes in his living room and live stream it for us

  • So ironic cos they just had Obama on the show last week

  • The Basher! Closed captions said "Donk Cheadle".

  • Cheadle is such a cool dude

  • Jesus loves you, he died on the cross for you to go to heaven. Salvation is a free gift, by faith and believing alone.

  • Omg- IN PERSON! Did everyone see him in Devil In A Blue Dress? That was the first time I had seen him and I was BLOWN AWAY by his performance.

  • it'd be nice if they didn't cut out the questions from Reggie...

  • President Obama was also not the greatest fly fisherman I've seen, besides sucking at waste-paper basketball.

  • Here's an idea if you like epic music. 💡 You need to listen to Mötley Crüe! They are epic and they have the best drummer ever! HE CAN EVEN PLAY UPSIDE DOWN!!! Look up Kickstart My Heart, Dr. Feelgood, Home Sweet Home, Primal Scream, the albums Too Fast For Love, Shout At the Devil, Dr. Feelgood, and Tommy's drum solos. You won't regret it.

  • Slap the base. When is Paul Rudd going to call him out?

  • The plant bit ultrastructually trace because airport epidemiologically depend sans a unaccountable answer. hospitable, tense trial

  • Ron Carter is certainly a big deal!

    • His

    • @Umair 👌🏻🎉

    • @Kariné Poghosyan Whoop jazz nerds rule!

    • @Umair 👌🏻 indeed! I will never forget seeing him perform at a big Jazzfest in New York - it was just so effortless

    • @Kariné Poghosyan he's played on an insane number of my favourite albums. Wouldn't be surprised if he's the most recorded bassist of all time


  • Good luck with that reboot.


    • @Rafli Rozaq yes right once i agree your opinion🔥🔥

    • sorry, I am also Indonesian, I respect Boy William, but my question is why did Mr. James have to invite Boy? My suggestion would make more sense if it was Rich Brian

  • Don Cheadle is starring in the new movie Space Jam: A New Legacy with LeBron James.

    • @𝐿 𝑦 𝑛 𝑛 𝐸 𝑑 𝑖 𝑡 𝑧He did comment that he said hi to everyone to say thank you for watching the vid but he deleted that comment soon after. I don't think he understands the like function

    • @Lucca Tabar nope. It would have been more secretive anddddd they wouldn’t put them unless it was a compliment towards them that genuinely enjoyed

    • @𝐿 𝑦 𝑛 𝑛 𝐸 𝑑 𝑖 𝑡 𝑧 there's no way in hell that he is actaully don. He also created the UZfire account just an hour before he started commenting

    • @Lucca Tabar right I told him I’m a minor and he still is suggesting it ...

    • @Don Cheadle Frank OK but it's a little sus that your asking to talk to people in private

  • This is a perfect example of why Obama will go down in history as the most impressive president the USA ever had. His ability to connect with celebrities. Playing basketball with kids and stuff, amazing. 😊

  • Nice stuff Corden... Always top shelf quality entertainment...

  • Поначалу подумал, что это и есть Обама

  • Lame... I’d rather see those guys play flip cup or beer pong. Loser has to endorse Donald Trump in 2024.

    • We'll have to have a sniper to take out the loser. If Trump wins in 2024 he will NEVER leave office. He'll declare a state of emergency and send his troops door to door killing dissidents. January's insurrection was small potatoes

    • Why do you have to mention Hitler when talking about a game.

  • Uhh, Corden...Colbert ran circles on him with paper hooping😂 Mitchell couldn't regain their honor later on but we love them


  • Sup James

  • 4... Ok



  • I aspire to make it big on UZfire


  • 3rd

  • Seccond...and counting

  • First
