Josh Duhamel Suggests Jerry O'Connell Get Regis Philbin's Job

Originally posted 02/08/2011 03:10PM

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."

Jerry O'Connell's recent studies at law school will come in handy sooner than expected, as he's signed on to play a lawyer in a new comic drama series on CBS.

O'Connell, 36, began taking night classes at Southwestern Law School in L.A. last August. This fall, he and Jim Belushi will portray two colorful Las Vegas defense attorneys in The Defenders.

"The script is great. The characters are a lot of fun," O'Connell says in a preview clip at CBS.com. "But really I wanted to work with Mr. Belushi. Comedy comes easy to him, but he is a dramatic actor."

Jerry O'Connell Can't Stop His Baby Girls from Giggling

Originally posted 08/25/2009 07:45AM

On movie sets and on stage, Jerry O'Connell may have limits to what he'll do for a laugh from his audience. But at home, he finds himself doing just about anything to get giggles out of the fraternal twin girls he and wife Rebecca Romijn welcomed last December.

Luckily, they're a generous audience. "I think of myself as a funny guy but nobody thinks I'm funnier than my daughters [Charlie and Dolly]," O'Connell, 35, tells PEOPLE. "We have three dogs. If I act like one of the dogs with the dogs, they go crazy. It's like we're talking Richard Pryor in his heyday."

O'Connell, who has been taking care of the girls while his wife films her ABC show Eastwick, says his 8-month-old twins even laugh when he's trying to discipline them.

Jerry O'Connell is hitting the books: The actor has enrolled at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles.

"I had always planned on continuing my education at some point," said the star who is dad to twin girls with wife Rebecca Romijn and because my wife is working on Eastwick, which is on Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. this fall, and I'm home all day with the girls, I figured I would take a couple of classes at night. "

As for how else he would have possibly passed the time? "It was either [law school] or play video games until 2 a.m.," he joked

Leslie Steinberg, Assistant Dean of Public Affairs at the school, told E! Online that the actor is enrolled as a part-time student and began attending classes last week.

With the couple welcoming their fraternal twin daughters Charlie and Dolly seven months ago, and the actress filming the pilot shortly after their birth, the girls were brought along for the ride.

"They were with me every second of the day," said Romijn. "I was still nursing and I was on a real strict schedule with them."

Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell's twins may only be 5 months old, but their personalities are starting to show through – especially their sense of humor.

"They're really developing their own, very specific personas," the Ugly Betty star told PEOPLE at the Dior Beauty Luncheon Wednesday at the Shangri-La Hotel in Santa Monica. "They're starting to think that things are hilarious, like they're noticing the dogs as being anything other than furniture. The dogs were play-fighting the other day and they thought that was hysterical."

With their twin girls, Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip, born Dec. 28, Jerry O'Connell says his wife, Rebecca Romijn, is performing double duty in the breastfeeding department.

"I don't know why I'm getting nervous saying this," the proud – and jumpy – dad tells Ellen DeGeneres for Friday the 13th's The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"I'm not saying anything dirty, it's natural but [Rebecca] does what we call the double football – which is just incredible, because it's like three beings attached," he says. "It's like something out of Cirque du Soleil. It's crazy."
