Alas, Josh Duhamel will not be greeting viewers every weekday morning with Kelly Ripa.

Rumors had circled that the Transformers star was on the short-list of guys being considered to replace Regis Philbin when he retires from Live! with Regis and Kelly later this year.

But it's not to be, says Duhamel

"I wouldn't be very good at it," Duhamel told sports radio talk show host Dan Patrick on Monday, adding that the job requires "special skills" he doesn't have. "I can't tell you where that rumor came from."



But Duhamel does have an idea of who should get the job.

"My buddy Jerry O’Connell would be great and that’s who I'm voting for," he said, adding, "but I don't know if he's up for it."
