Late on Wednesday night, Reddit posed two simple questions to users:

Do you have a celebrity look-a-like? If so, can you share a side-by-side comparison?

And a handful of users responded in the affirmative to both inquiries, some of them supplying the Internet with photos that look eerily similar to those of their famous dopplegangers.

Seriously, let's be sure to keep all sharp knives away from the first dude featured below and let's all sit back and wonder just how much tail the guy who looks like Channing Tatum brings in...

Craig Ferguson announced that he's stepping down from The Late Late Show back in April, and CBS has been scrambling to find a replacement for the cultishly beloved Scottish comic ever since.

Well, it now seems that execs have decided to keep the show's UK vibe going, as they've chosen British actor and stand-up James Corden as Ferguson's replacement.

Though certainly not a household name in the States, Corden's been a longtime favorite overseas as the star and co-creator of the award-winning BBC sitcom Gavin & Stacy.

If Americans recognize Corden at all, it's likely as a result of his two-episode arc on Doctor Who.

As he announced on last night's Late Show, David Letterman is retiring in 2015 which gives CBS execs just a few months to secure a replacement for the beloved host. No mean feat, given the high stakes in the late night ratings battle and giant shoes Dave's successor will need to fill.

So who should the network choose to fill such an important role? Well, the race is wide open with several late night hosts up for contact renewal within the next year. Check out the gallery above for some of the frontrunners.

Big names like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert may find themselves competing with lesser-known basic cable stalwarts like Bravo's Andy Cohen.

Dark horse candidates like Chelsea Handler could bring an all new audience to the CBS late night lineup, but the network execs (typically not adventurous types) may choose to play it safe by promoting Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson.

The Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson unloaded on the bombing in Boston, a city with which he has a "personal connection" in his monologue early this morning.

He delved right into the Boston Marathon bombing at the onset.

“Obviously the news of today is so horrendous that it would seem insensitive at best to say ‘It’s a great day for America,’ so I won’t be starting with that," he said.

“Is anyone else sick of this sh**? I seem to have to say that too often."

According to the AP, detectives from the LAPD's Major Crimes Unit was working with federal and European agents to find out who sent him the letter.

The substance was eventually determined to be cornmeal.

Ferguson Tweeted about the situation: "Ack! Someone mailed my show white powder & claimed it was anthrax. I'm not a big fan of that sort of thing."

David Letterman was also the recipient of threats recently. In Dave's case, the Jihad was totally waged after he made some cracks about Al Qaeda.
