Wow! We didn't see this one coming!
Sources close to the production of Live With Regis and Kelly have revealed that upon Philbin's exit from the morning talk show this summer, Josh Duhamel may be in the running to fill his vacant seat - because he's apparently a favorite guest of Ripa's!
And when the actor's wife, Fergie, was asked to confirm, she replied rather coyly by saying:
"Wow! Do they have Vegas odds on that? Right now he is actually in New York filming 'New Year's Eve.' You're going to have to ask him that question."
If true, that would definitely be a pretty huge career shift for him!
But hey! He'd definitely be a nice bit of eye candy to enjoy during the weekday mornings!
Why the hell not?! LOLz!
What do U think?? Who should replace Regis??
