Looks like there will be a male chatting it up with the ladies and their guests in the upcoming season of CBS afternoon’s The Talk.

According to The Wrap, sources with knowledge of the situation behind the scenes indicate that Jerry O’Connell is very close to a deal and has been in discussions with the series since May.  However, CBS refused to comment on the item.

O’Connell has been a guest host on episodes of The Talk, and the series is currently under a makeover, in a way, after the exit of Sharon Osbourne – it appears O’Connell would take her spot.

Jerry has previously guest-hosted The Wendy Williams Show and has been known to express that he loves daytime.  He also hosted a show for Fox affiliates back in 2019.

The actor would join Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots and Elaine Welteroth as the series regulars.  Carrie Ann Inaba has taken a leave of absence from the talk show.

So, what do you think of O’Connell becoming a regular component of the hosts of The Talk? Comment below.

Sliders was a great show. Sad to see Jerry’s fallen so far since then that he had to take this gig.

No. I believe this is a bad move. For me this man is just too high energy.

This guy is just desperate! He’s been guest host of every talk show imaginable and still hasn’t landed a gig. He’s not funny and a bore. Take a hint, Jerry! Give it up!

Jerry LIKES being a guest host. HE has turned down offers to be a regular host on several talk shows.

As far as I’m concerned, he peaked in 1986 in the classic “Stand By Me”. His Vern was often the butt of jokes, but O’Connell brought a poignance to the character. In person, he’s just too much, as others have said. But he will be competition for the equally loud Ms. Underwood.

Those magpies will eat him up. When he’s through, he won’t even remember his name!

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.

Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”
