Ever since Nick Cannon split from America’s Got Talent over comments made from both Nick and NBC’s executives, Simon Cowell has finally whittled down the list of replacements. To 3.
AGT brass is zeroing on Marlon Wayans and 2 other comedians to replace Nick. The other guys are Tone Bell and Brandon Mychal Smith.
Wayans is obviously the big name here, but the 2 others have just as much of a chance to land the new gig considering their acting and comedy chops.
Bell is a stand-up and actor who’s worked on shows like “The Flash,” “Truth Be Told,” “Chelsea Lately,” and “Key and Peele.”
Brandon Mychal Smith is a straight up Disney kid, who starred in shows like “That’s So Raven,” “So Random!” and Disney movies “Starstruck” and “Let It Shine.” He also played Little Richard in the James Brown biopic “Get On Up.”
My money is on Marlon, although Simon may want to go with a lesser known emcee, so he can control him better and get him on the cheap.
