After 28 years, legendary talk show host Regis Philbin suddenly announced last week that he will be retiring from his morning talk show, Live! with Regis and Kelly, at the end of this season.

Dozens of names have been tossed around as to who will take over the coveted spot… and among them? Nick Jonas. Yup, the Nick Jonas we know and love from the Jonas Brothers.

Now before you go thinking that's absolutely ridiculous, Nick actually has sat in Regis' chair before. He guest hosted with Kelly Ripa last year on January 8, 2010… and was a total natural!
