NEW YORK, Sept. 16 (UPI) --
Drew Carey is in talks to join the list of guest hosts when "Late Late Show" returns to CBS Monday without Craig Kilborn, Daily Variety said Thursday.
The paper said Carey -- who has a new show this fall on the WB, "Drew Carey's Green Screen" -- was negotiating a deal to take over hosting duties for two nights next week.
Kilborn announced earlier this summer that he was leaving the show, which follows "Late Show with David Letterman" on CBS.
"Ed" star Michael Ian Black and "Strangers with Candy" star Amy Sedaris are reportedly in line as guest hosts for the show, along with comic-actor D.L. Hughley and sports talk personality Jim Rome.
