In the trailer for the film, Ed even tries to convince Jack - played by British actor Himesh Patel - to change the lyrics of Hey Jude to "Hey Dude".

Meanwhile, James Corden gets Jack to write a new song on the spot while appearing on his Late Late Show, so Jack sings the classic Beatles hit Something - of course, no one else knows it isn’t by him.
