"LIVE! WITH KELLY" ANNOUNCES FOUR UPCOMING GUEST CO-HOSTS

Jerry O'Connell and Josh Groban Return to "LIVE"

Actor Jonah Hill and "Dancing with the Stars" Professional Derek Hough Make Their Co-Hosting Debuts

NEW YORK, NY - November 23, 2011 -- Two new faces will make their co-hosting debuts and two favorites return in the coming weeks on nationally-syndicated morning talk show "LIVE! with Kelly." Joining co-host Kelly Ripa for the first time will be "Dancing with the Stars" professional dancer and Season 13 finalist DEREK HOUGH (Monday, December 5) and actor JONAH HILL (Tuesday, December 6). Returning to the show are favorites JERRY O'CONNELL (Friday, November 25) and singer JOSH GROBAN (December 7-9).

DEREK HOUGH is the only three-time champion in franchise history of the hit ABC show "Dancing with the Stars." Best known for his innovation and daring choreography on the show, his work has brought him three Emmy nominations and inquiries from the film and music world regarding his dance knowledge and ability. A multi-talented entertainer, Hough recently took off a season from "Dancing with the Stars" to film his first feature film starring role for director Duane Adler and producer Robert Cort in "Cobu 3D: New York Nights." Acting opposite Korean pop sensation BoA, "Cobu" tells the story of star-crossed dancers in New York who find themselves at the center of a bitter rivalry between their brothers' underground dance clubs. Hough performed in London's West End, where he starred as the male lead in the critically-acclaimed stage version of "Footloose," was one of the featured dancers on the "Dancing with the Stars" tour and a choreographer on the BBC (UK) hit show, "Dance X." Joining Ripa and Hough on December 5 will be actors JEFFREY DONOVAN and ELIZABETH OLSEN, and Chef PAULA DEEN.

JONAH HILL rose to fame after his breakout role in the hit comedy "Superbad." Since then, Hill has starred in various comedies for Apatow Productions while successfully segueing into dramatic roles, as most recently seen in the critically-acclaimed drama "Moneyball," in which he stars opposite Brad Pitt. Hill will next be seen in the R-rated comedy "The Sitter" for FOX, which he also executive-produced. He is currently in production on "Neighborhood Watch," a comedy written by the same team behind "Superbad," Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, which also stars Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn. Hill also currently serves as the voice and co-creator of the breakout animated series, "Allen Gregory" on FOX. "LIVE's" December 6 guest lineup includes actresses SARAH JESSICA PARKER and EMILY VAN CAMP, and Chef RICHARD BLAIS.

JERRY O'CONNELL, born and raised in New York City, began his acting career at age 11 when he co-starred as Vern Tessio in the classic Rob Reiner film, "Stand By Me." After graduating with a BFA from New York University, he returned to feature film work, notably receiving critical acclaim for his role as quarterback Frank Cushman in "Jerry Maguire" with Tom Cruise. Additional screen credits include "Scream 2"; "Can't Hardly Wait";"Mission to Mars"; "Tomcats"; the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced comedy "Kangaroo Jack"; "Yours, Mine and Ours"; "Man About Town" (with Ben Affleck); "Obsessed" (with Beyoncé Knowles); and Dimension Films' recent remake of the cult classic "Piranha 3D." Equally prolific on television, O'Connell most recently starred as Pete Kaczmarek in the CBS comedic drama "The Defenders," opposite Jim Belushi. He previously starred on NBC's hit drama "Crossing Jordan" for six seasons. Other television credits include the Lifetime original movie "Nora Roberts' Midnight Bayou" opposite Faye Dunaway, "Sliders," the miniseries "The '60s" and "My Secret Identity." In 2004 O'Connell sold the screenplay for "First Daughter" to New Regency Films. He served as an executive producer for the film, which starred Katie Holmes and was directed by Forrest Whitaker. This month O'Connell made his Broadway debut in Theresa Rebeck's "Seminar." Stopping by to chat with Ripa and O'Connell on the November 25 show are actors NATHAN FILLION and JANE LYNCH.

JOSH GROBAN, an internationally-renowned performer who has sold more than 25 million albums and DVDs worldwide, has thrilled a legion of devoted fans with his flawless baritone and extraordinary stage presence. Groban has 5 platinum or multi-platinum albums and ranks as Billboard's 14th top-selling artist of the 2000s, with more than 20 million units sold in the U.S. alone. Over the years, Groban has shown his lighter side by appearing in various late-night television sketches (Jimmy Kimmel's hilarious video spoofs "I'm F***ing Ben Affleck" and "Josh Groban sings Kanye West Tweets"), "Late Show with David Letterman" (Top Ten Rejected Josh Groban Songs), as well as singing a comic medley of well-known TV theme songs at the 60th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Groban has been featured on "The Simpsons," performed on Adult Swim's "Tim and Eric Awesome Show," "Great Job!," and made two guest-starring appearances on Fox's hit show "Glee." He also appeared in "Crazy, Stupid, Love," a motion picture comedy starring Steve Carell, Julianne Moore and Emma Stone, and on television as Andy Bernard's brother on "The Office" From December 7-9, Ripa and Groban will welcome actor ZAC EFRON, Chef ANNE BURRELL, actresses CHARLIZE THERON and ABIGAIL BRESLIN, Chef Michael Symon and singer CODY SIMPSON.

"LIVE! with Kelly" is executive- produced by Michael Gelman, and is distributed in national syndication by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. Produced by WABC-TV in New York, "LIVE! with Kelly" airs in more than 200 markets across the U.S.
