Jerry O'Connell Knew He Wasn't Going to Be Kelly Ripa's 'Live' Co-Host

Jerry O’Connell may have once been a front runner to be Kelly Ripa‘s Live! co-host, but he knew he wasn’t getting the job.

While the 43-year-old actor sat in as Kelly‘s co-host numerous times, the job was given to Ryan Seacrest.

“I love it. I love her. It’s just, I mean, you guys know, you do live TV every day, there’s really nothing like it,” he said while on KTLA.

He added, “I knew. I did know. And it is a little scary, because you know some secret information that stockholders, like people of power…the decision that people in power have made.”

Jerry added that there’s no hard feelings between Ryan and him.

“He’s great. I know him. He’s great for that job. I still, like a weird ex, I watch them every morning. It’s like going to check your ex’s Facebook page, let’s see what they’re up to,” he joked.
