The makeover at “The View” is complete.
The long-running ABC daytime chat show has tapped actress Rosie Perez and Republican media operative Nicolle Wallace to join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on the panel, the network announced Wednesday.
The new panel will make its debut on September 15.
Perez, 49, known for her roles in movies like “Do the Right Thing” and “Fearless,” is the first Latina to sit on “The View” coveted panel created by Barbara Walters, who retired from the onscreen role this spring.
There had been a lot of speculation around the potential candidates that would replace outgoing “View” co-hosts Sherri Shepard and Jenny McCarthy. According to reports, show producers were looking for a Latina and a conservative voice to round out the panel.
Goldberg is the only holdover on the program with O’Donnell, who was rehired after leaving the show in 2007.
Wallace, a political analyst for MSNBC, was communications chief for President George W. Bush’s reelection campaign and was an adviser for John McCain’s 2008 campaign.
Along with her new post on the daytime chat show, Perez will be starring in the new Broadway play “Fish in the Dark,” written and co-starred Larry David.
According to Variety, the play, which revolves around a death in the family, will also star Jayne Houdysheel, Jonny Orsini, Jake Cannavale and Jerry Adler.
