LONDON — Josh Duhamel took his Fargo stories all the way to London recently, where he was a guest on the Late Late Show with James Corden.

Although the actor and North Dakota native was there to talk about his upcoming movie "Bandit," he shared a story from his Fargo wedding, in which he woke up on his big day unable to even move.

"The night before, at the rehearsal dinner, we had a blast. We had a band named 32 Below there, then we had a party bus afterwards," Duhamel said. "So, I think I'm going to hang from the rafters inside this party bus and start crowd-surfing across the top of it, and I throw my back out."

Duhamel says he woke up the next day, on the morning of his wedding, and he couldn't get out of bed.

The "Transformers" actor days it was "touch and go" until about an hour before the wedding when he went to the emergency room to get "shot up with some cortisone".


Duhamel married Fargo native Audra Mari, a beauty pageant queen who also hosted a travel show produced and directed by Forum Communications' Click Content Studios called "Backroads with Audra Mari."

So here I am, wondering how I can cover an event like a celebrity wedding reception to which I haven’t been invited. I don’t know if my iPhone 8s and constant look of embarrassment have qualified me as seasoned paparazzi. The only time I have been more mortified was when my editor sent me to knock on the Insane Clown Posse’s bus to see if they would be up for an interview. (They were not.)

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
