Actress Rosie Perez and political commentator Nicolle Wallace will fill the vacant seats on The View when the ABC daytime talk show returns for a new season on Sept. 15. They will join Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg as replacements for Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy, who left the program last month.
Rosie Perez, Nicolle Wallace Join ‘The View’
NEW YORK (AP) — Actress Rosie Perez and Republican media operative Nicolle Wallace are joining ABC’s daytime chat show, “The View.”
The network said Wednesday that the two will join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on the panel for the show’s new season, beginning Sept. 15.
Goldberg is the only holdover on the program, where creator Barbara Walters retired from an onscreen role this spring and longtime producer Bill Geddie left after learning a new offscreen boss was taking over.
Perez is an actress and choreographer who has appeared in the movies “Do the Right Thing” and “Fearless.” Wallace, a political analyst for MSNBC, was communications chief for President George W. Bush’s reelection campaign and was an adviser on John McCain’s 2008 campaign.
