“The View” Considering Mario Cantone As Rosie O’Donnell’s Replacement

ABC's "The View" - Season 18
Who will replace Rosie O’Donnell on The View? Mario Cantone’s name has been bandied about lately—the pint-sized Sex and the City star was on the show twice last week, and was reportedly offered a permanent slot last summer.

But, he tells Page Six, he’s not sure a seat at the table is in the cards:

“I do a lot of different things for them, and I have a great relationship with them,” the out comic told he paper. “A full-time job? I don’t know. I don’t know what they’re gonna do…They don’t tell anybody anything.”

He added: “I go in and just have a great time. I’ve been through every cast, and I love them.”

Would Mario make a good addition as the show’s first male co-host?
