James Corden might be spending his weekend hosting a huge The Mummy marathon if the latest episode of The Late Late Show is anything to go by.

The 40-year-old hosted a Q&A session with the audience on the latest episode – to let them ask things about the show and get some backstage gossip.

However, one fan took the opportunity to ask the question on precisely none of our minds – and it all got a little awkward.

The person opened up a huge can of worms with just six words: Was Billy Zane in The Mummy?

Hun, you realise you can just Google this stuff?

James was as perplexed as the rest of us, telling him: Its not really the sort of question we were thinking about… Im not Siri.

Was Billy Zane in The Mummy? I think he was, yes. Billy Zane was in The Mummy.

But when another audience member popped up, telling the presenter he was wrong, it all became a little more akward.

And a third took it even further and bet James $100 (£77) that Billy Zane was in fact not in the film.

Unfortunately the host was out the $100 when he was proved wrong, and a further $500 (£388) when he claimed Wesley Snipes was in The Matrix.

He wasnt.

Maybe if James had done a little Googling, or yknow, actually watched the films properly, he wouldnt be out $600…

But, we can allow him the slip-up after he recently revealed he had spent the day trying to keep up with Mark Wahlbergs insane daily routine – all in the name of entertainment.

BGUK_1406205 - ** RIGHTS: WORLDWIDE EXCEPT IN UNITED STATES ** Los Angeles, CA - James Corden joins Mark Wahlberg's 4am workout club for The Late Late Show segment. Brit host Corden decided to join the Hollywood actor after he recently revealed his 'crazy' schedule which includes waking up at 2.30am and then working out from 3.40am to 5.15am every day. A blurry-eyes Corden got up at 2.30am, had a shower and then joined Wahlberg at his home gym. The actor then put him through his paces, starting with stretches and a warm up before hitting the treadmill, skipping and boxing. A clearly exhausted Corden struggled to keep up and admitted he was only enjoying the cardio part as he felt like he was doing 'boy band moves'. At the end of the gruelling session, Corden presented Wahlberg with a '4am Club' tee-shirt - but the actor complained that Corden looked more muscly on the shirt than him! As Corden waved goodbye, Wahlberg told the producer: "Just make sure he doesn't throw up in my bathroom, yeah," continuing to work out. *BACKGRID DOES NOT CLAIM ANY COPYRIGHT OR LICENSE IN THE ATTACHED MATERIAL.

Earlier this year, the Departed actor claimed he woke up and started his day at 2:30am – when some of us are just crawling into bed – with a whopping two work-out sessions before dawn.

And hes not even slightly joking.

Whatever works for you, Marky Mark.

James decided to take one for the team and shadowed the 47-year-old to see him in action with his own eyes.

In a clip shared on The Late Late Show, the Gavin And Stacey actor could be seen rocking up to Marks plush home gym at 3:40am, before partaking in some cardio and weights sessions.

Honestly, we need a nap just thinking of the whole thing.
