Playing EXCLUSIVE: Michael Strahan Isn't Losing Sleep Over the 'Live! With Kelly' Co-Host Search

Michael Strahan told ET he's been too busy to keep up with his former show.

We caught up with the former NFL star on Thursday at the New York premiere of his new movie, Ice Age: Collision Course, where he made it clear that he has put all the Live! With Kelly drama behind him.

"I haven't seen it," Strahan told ET when asked who Kelly Ripa's next co-host should be. "I wouldn't be able to tell you."

After four years as Ripa's right-hand man, Strahan bid farewell to the show in May, joining ABC's Good Morning America full-time. Sources tell ET that, despite the abrupt departure, Ripa and Strahan were able to resolve their issues with each other prior to Strahan's exit.

With all the Live! talk out of the way, Strahan was much more chatty about the chance to see his latest movie with his 11-year-old twins, Sophia and Isabella.

"They're going to laugh," he told ET. "I know they're going to make fun of me or laugh at me, so I can't wait for them to see it."

Strahan joined the fifth installment of the Ice Age franchise as the voice of Teddy the rabbit, as Ray Romano, John Leguizamo and Denis Leary return to voice Manny, Sid and Diego, who must find a new home after a series of cosmic events threatens the Ice Age World.

Another newcomer to the Ice Age kingdom is Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who had a blast as the laid-back Shangri Llama.

"I saw the very first [Ice Age] and I loved it," Ferguson told ET. "To be asked to be a part of it now, having been a fan of the franchise, is really kind of cool."

Ice Age: Collision Course opens July 22.
