Even though the word was out that former football star turned commentator turned host, Michael Strahan was the pick to be Kelly Ripa’s new co-host, on what was formerly Live with Regis and Kelly, today it became official on-air!

Earlier this morning, Kelly teased the announcement on Good Morning America, holding up little signs with the heads of the five guys who were left in the running including singer, Josh Groban and SNL’s Seth Meyers.   Then when Kelly opened today’s episode of her own  show, she introduced Strahan and it became official including the new name of the show, Live! With Kelly and Michael.

Michael Gelman, the long time executive producer of the talk show, told the Huffington Post this morning why the decision to go with Strahan as the first permanent male co-host since the departure of long time series star, Regis Philben.  Gelman stated,  “Chemistry isn’t something you can really put your finger on.  But we went through 59 people and we brought people back a lot of times and we thought about a lot of people. There was definitely something special individually with Michael and also their chemistry was there and they had this energy and they’re able to have this fun and shorthand together that it just works. It was a tough decision, but Michael coming back all those times made it much easier.”

So what do you think of Michael Strahan being Kelly’s new co-host?  Let us know your thoughts!

Live! Kelly and Michael…On the sign and on the web site, there is no “With” in the title. Don’t know if that’s intentional or not. Anyway, I’m not happy about Michael, but I’ll give him a chance. I thought there were many others that would have done better, and I still have doubts about Michael long-term, but he does seem genuinely happy to have the gig…who wouldn’t be with the salary they’re probably paying him…so I hope it goes well. The producers have spent a lot of money since Regis left to try to make this show stay viable, so… Read more »

I thought that it would be Joel McHale, but am just as happy with Michael Strahan. He and Kelly are fun, energetic and lively. Thank you for taking the time to find the right fit and not just selecting someone to fill the chair. Regis is missed but Michael will be just fine!

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.
