Regis Wants to Be the Next Andy Rooney (VIDEO)

As the Regis Philbin Farewell Tour enters the home stretch before his final 'Live' show on Friday, the Reeg's TV future remains unclear. He filmed a pilot episode of a reality show, but didn't take to the genre, and the project never went anywhere.

Tuesday on 'The View,' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) Regis came up with an innovative idea for next move. Instead of starting his own new show, he'd like to just be featured on the last five minutes of someone else's show.

"I want to be Andy Rooney!" he yelled. "I'll just spend five minutes with whoever's there," he continued, and when Elisabeth Hasselbeck joked that maybe he should assume that role on 'The View,' he jumped at the idea. "Now you're talkin' baby!"

He then solicited some suggestions for who should be his 'Live' replacement. Sherri Shepherd suggested Wayne Brady, while Joy Behar joked that Wilford Brimeley could fill his shoes. Regis liked the suggestion of Harry Connick Jr., and when Joy started to explain why she liked that idea, Regis jokingly made clear that he'd had enough. "Yeah, sure, why don't we forget about whoever that is and talk some more about Regis."
