More casting speculation for "Into the Woods"

Broadway World is reporting that British actor James Corden is in talks for a role in Into the Woods.  I know, who?  Apparently he's a rather popular actor in the U.K.  He recently met with director Rob Marshall to discuss his participation in the film.  From what I can gather, Corden may be up for the role of The Baker.  If this is indeed true, it would add some weight to the rumor that Johnny Depp is signing on as The Wolf.  Corden may have a scheduling conflict, however.  Regardless, here's where we are on the cast as of last night:

The Witch:  Meryl Streep (confirmed)
The Baker:  Johnny Depp (rumored)
                  James Corden (rumored)
The Wolf:   Johnny Depp (rumored)
