Could Drew Barrymore be the next Ellen DeGeneres?
On Tuesday, it was reported that the Blended actress is in talks with Warner Bros. and Miz DeGeneres' production A Very Good Production over a possible talk show development deal. WHAT???

While a representative from WB has since declined to comment on the rumor, sources dished that conversations have been ongoing despite the lack of confirmation. It's said if the deal WERE to happen, the Finding Dory star would be an executive producer for Drew's show.
We can't say we're surprised to hear the 41-year-old is looking to strike a deal with the entertainment company as she narrates the show First Dates — which is produced by Warner Bros. TV's Shed Media and DeGeneres' production company. Other reports suggest Drew is in talks with the studio to gain a development deal as a producer. Huh.
That would make sense as she's the executive producer of the Esquire series Knife Fight and served as the EP on VH1's Tough Love. And who knows if Drew will even have the time to launch her own talk show as she's slated to star alongside Timothy Olyphant in the Netflix original Santa Clarita Diet.
What do YOU think? Could you see Drew hosting her own daytime chat show?
