Jerry O’Connell Joins The Talk as the Show’s First Male Co-Host: ‘It’s Really Exciting’

Jerry O’Connell is joining The Talk as a co-host, replacing Sharon Osbourne after she left the show earlier this year amid controversy. 

“It’s really exciting,” he told his new co-hosts. “First of all I want to say, you ladies have been so welcoming to me, I mean, I came here as a guest, months ago, and just from the moment I walked in, you’re just gracious, you’re kind, you’re fun, and it worked. And here we are and we’re gonna have a lot of fun, we really are.”

According to The Wrap, the actor has been in negotiations with CBS since at least May.
