Josh Duhamel to replace Regis Philbin?
Regis Philbin has announced he plans on retiring from Live with Regis and Kelly -- and sources are saying actor Josh Duhamel may be the frontrunner to take his spot.
Live with Josh and Kelly? Sources from ET are saying that Transformers actor Josh Duhamel may be replacing Regis Philbin once he retires. The hunky actor (and husband of Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas) is a favorite of Ripa's -- and we can see why!
Fergie was asked if the rumors were true -- and she remained coy. "Wow! Do they have Vegas odds on that? Right now he is actually in New York filming New Year's Eve."
When she was asked again -- she would only say, "You're going to have to ask him that question."
What does Regis Philbin think of Duhamel replacing him? "I haven't heard that name yet. That's a good name. Actors have careers that are pretty good to them -- this is a daily thing every morning, so they've got to consider that before they get involved."
Duhamel's publicist flatly denied the rumor, saying, "There is no truth to the story."
