Michael Strahan's last day on Live! With Kelly and Michael is now only one week away, and ET has new details on his potential replacement.
While Kelly Ripa's good friend Anderson Cooper and Neil Patrick Harris are among those who have been mentioned as possible contenders to fill Strahan's spot, a source connected to the search for her new co-host tells ET they are looking for someone more ethnically diverse.
That is certainly keeping in line with the guest hosts scheduled to appear on the show the week following Strahan's exit. The program recently announced that Jimmy Kimmel, Jussie Smollett, Cedric the Entertainer, David Muir and Daniel Dae Kim will be Ripa's right-hand men during this intervening period.
Additionally, ET has learned that Ripa recently began pre-taping solo celebrity interviews to air after Strahan leaves.
Strahan is saying goodbye to the daytime talk show on May 13 after four years with the program. When Regis Philbin left the show in 2011 after 23 years, the episode was dubbed his farewell special with a long retrospective piece and plenty of surprise guests, but a source tells ET Strahan's last day won't be as festive.
At the Met Gala in New York City on Monday night, Strahan spoke to ET about leaving Live! for Good Morning America. "I'm looking forward to [GMA], but I still look forward to going to work at Live!," Strahan said. "I love being there. I still love it."
