Deadline announced today that actress Rosie Perez and political commentator Nicolle Wallace (who served as communications director for President George W. Bush) will be taking over the View hosting spots vacated by Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy after they were fired last month. They’ll join Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg as hosts for the show’s upcoming eighteenth season, which will also have a new studio, set, logo and behind-the-scenes team. It was announced yesterday that Perez would also be starring opposite Larry David in his new Broadway play, so hopefully he’ll stop by for some chitchat?
