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.
