Rove hints at more cast changes
As ten years looms for Rove McManus, he says he's looking at two more faces to add to the line-up.
On Sunday night Rove returns with new cast members Judith Lucy and newsreader Kristy Warner. They join Peter Helliar (pictured), Hamish & Andy and Ryan Shelton.
But Rove McManus says the cast changes may not be done and dusted.
“We’ve got two new faces we’ll probably be seeing before the year’s end as well,” he said.
And his enthusiasm for fronting the show after ten seasons hasn’t waned.
“I’ll gladly do another 10 if everyone will have me,” he said. “We’ll see how we go.
“When we started the show we were at 11 o’clock on a Tuesday night – I would’ve just been happy to just get 10 years in that slot yet alone move into prime time and one of the most competitive slots of the television week,” he said.
In that time McManus has also built up a formidable production house with Roving Enterprises. It has produced Skithouse, Hamish and Andy specials, Real Stories, Before the Game, the ARIA Awards, The 7PM Project Real Stories currently screening on TEN.
Rove will soon chalk up ten years as a show on Nine / TEN.
“And doing some of our best numbers in those 10 years.
“It’s nice to be talking about the show at this point in its life span when it’s doing well.”
