Actor/comedian Marlon Wayans is in the running to replace Nick Cannon as the host of America’s Got Talent. Simon Cowell is considering Wayans, and comedians Tone Bell and Brandon Mychal Smith. Cannon quit Feb. 13 for being censored over stand-up remarks.
TMZ spills the tea;
Bell is a stand-up and actor who’s worked on shows like “The Flash,” “Truth Be Told,” “Chelsea Lately,” and “Key and Peele.” He’s also made appearances on “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and “Comedy Knockout.”
Brandon Mychal Smith is a straight up Disney kid, who starred in shows like “That’s So Raven,” “So Random!” and Disney movies “Starstruck” and “Let It Shine.” He also played Little Richard in the James Brown biopic “Get On Up.”
And of course, there’s Wayans — who’s been in TONS of movies and shows. He’s even got NBC hosting experience for their show “I Can Do That” … so he might have this in the bag.
