Rove to keep chair warm for Craig Ferguson?
Update: Both Rove McManus and Craig Ferguson deny there are any plans for the Aussie host to fill in on the US chat show.
Management for Rove McManus have watered down suggestions that he will fill in for 6 weeks on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson during the US summer.
The Daily Telegraph reports McManus has inked a deal with David Letterman’s production company World Wide Pants.
The move is apparently a “test” to see how he is received by US audiences.
But management responded with “Not that I’m aware,” to the claims.
McManus is currently busy with Say It Now, which also features American actress Valerie Bertinelli.
Update: Rove on Twitter: No truth to “reports” @rove1974 and @craigyferg are swapping seats. Besides, that’s how you get pregnant.
Craig Ferguson on Twitter: I hope reports I’m being replaced by an Australian are false. CBS would never allow a foreigner to do the show. Or would they? Oh no!
I”m not taking a six week vacation. There is no guest host. . Cocaine is not addictive. #sometimestheinternetcontainsuntruths.
