One Direction is the one of the biggest musical acts in the world. James Corden has gone from being nearly unknown in the United States two years ago to being everyone's new favorite talk show host. While it might not seem like a 37-year-old comedian of late night TV would have much in common with four musical hearthrobs in their early 20s, the five guys have been close friends for more than half a decade. Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson have appeared on The Late Late Show as a group three times, with Niall also appearing recently as a solo act. We've collected 17 of our favorite photos highlighting this awesome five-way bromance on TV and behind the camera.
