There's been a lot of interest in who will permanently fill Michael Strahan's former co-hosting spot on LIVE. In fact, Kelly Ripa has made it clear that she's just waiting for the right candidate to come along. So when Jerry O'Connell stopped by Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Monday, he revealed whether he thinks he's the perfect candidate for the job.

And his response just might leave you wondering.

"For those who don't know, I've guest hosted on LIVE with Kelly. Andy and I have a funny joke, can I tell them? So Andy and I have a joke. So Andy guest hosts a lot as well and I get asked often [if I'd be interested in the job]," he said. "Well, of course, [on] red carpets, [but] even the cab I took over here the cabbie was like, 'Hey, man, are you going to be on LIVE with Kelly or what?' Like literally everywhere."

So, what's Jerry and Andy's gag? "And I have a pad answer that I do and Andy knows this. [It's], 'You know what? I would love to get that job, but I'm pretty sure it's going to Andy Cohen,'" Jerry continued, with Andy sharing his side of the joke.

"And I say, 'I can't do it, but i think Jerry O'Connell's the guy.' So we just punt it back and forth and no one has really caught on," Andy shared.

Until now...
