Actress, GOP analyst to join ‘View’ panel

Perez

– Actress Rosie Perez and Republican political commentator Nicolle Wallace are joining ABC’s daytime chat show, “The View.”

The network said Wednesday that the two will join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on the panel for the show’s new season, beginning Sept. 15.

Goldberg is the only holdover on the program from last season. Creator Barbara Walters retired from an on-screen role last spring. Longtime producer Bill Geddie left after learning that a new off-screen boss was taking over.

Perez is an actress and choreographer who has appeared in the movies “Do the Right Thing” and “Fearless.” Wallace, a political analyst for MSNBC, was communications chief for President George W. Bush’s re-election campaign and was an adviser on Arizona Sen. John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.
