Jerry O'Connell Joins 'The Talk' as Co-Host

It’s official – Jerry O’Connell is joining The Talk as a permanent co-host to replace Sharon Osbourne!

The 47-year-old actor – who has guest-hosted the show for the past few months – joins co-hosts Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots and Elaine Welteroth. Carrie Ann Inaba has taken a leave of absence from the series.

“It’s fun, and it works, and we’re going to have a lot of fun,” Jerry said during today’s show about the announcement. He is the first male co-host to ever be instituted on The Talk.

Sharon left the show earlier this year after defending Piers Morgan in the Meghan Markle debate and getting embroiled in some controversy after an on-air argument with Sheryl.

Her rumored payout to leave the show was also revealed.
