Watch One Direction and James Corden Play Dodgeball

One Direction and James Corden play dodgeball

One Direction might have lost a Malik, but they’ve gained a Corden. Though just for a bit of a laugh.

The boyband joined forces with James Corden for a hilarious dodgeball competition that was aired overnight on The Late Late Show.

One Direction Confirm Progress on New Album During First TV Appearance Post-Zayn Malik

In the seven minute clip, Corden put Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson through their paces with a goofy training regime before hitting the court for a dodgeball battle. Corden marshalled the troops with his hardly-stirring line: "This is everything we’ve been working towards,” before his Corden’s Angel’s went at it with the Ball Busters. 

It was "1D night" on Corden’s late-night program, and they gave their fans a bit of everything -- news of a new album, promises they won’t split, and a good, hard laugh. Check out what happened when 1D and Corden played ball.
