[Blind Gossip] There are five people in serious contention right now for a costarring gig on a popular daytime show.
Four of them are gay white men, all with significant TV experience. Some out, some not. All are personal friends of the current star.
Our personal favorite for this cushy job? The Fifth Man! He is a straight white guy, married with kids, funny, likable, lots of experience as a TV and film actor. We were actually very surprised he did not get the job a few years ago, but producers went in a different direction at the last minute. We are hoping that they are smart enough to grab him this time around!
Interesting that with the heavy push for diversity at the network… there are no women or minorities in consideration at this time.
