Former first lady Michele Obama will lead a celebrity dodgeball team in an international face-off on CBS's "The Late Late Show" next week, host James Corden said.

Obama’s all-female American team will include Melissa McCarthy, Allison Janney, Mila Kunis, Lena Waithe and Kate Hudson, according to Corden. The late-night host added that he will lead an all-male team, mostly from the United Kingdom, including Harry Styles, Benedict Cumberbatch, "Game of Thrones" star John Bradley and "Late Late Show" bandleader Reggie Watts. 

Corden teased the dodgeball game on Twitter, sharing a photo and tagging the stars.

The episode, airing next Monday, kicks off a week of shows from London, Cordon’s hometown, according to Variety.

This is the third year the show has traveled across the pond, and previous trips have included videos for viewers like a special edition of “Carpool Karaoke” with Paul McCartney.
