Drew Carey front runner for Price Is Right job
Drew Carey is evidently at the top of the short list for the hosting gig at 'The Price is Right.'
Carey confirmed to Variety that he is in talks with CBS execs to replace the retired Bob Barker.
"It's going back and forth. We call them one day, and they call us the next day," Carey said to Variety. "I think it would be really fun to do. I wouldn't have gone into negotiations with them if I didn't think I would be good at it."
"That show needs to be treated with a lot of respect, as far as its place in American culture," Carey said. "As long as you do that and keep it going, I think it would be great."
Carey is also the host of CBS's new primetime game show "The Power of 10."
