An actor who has become a familiar face both on TV and on the big screen is getting into the late-night talk game. Bravo announced plans today for “Real Men Watch Bravo,” to be hosted by Jerry O’Connell.
O’Connell is known for a string of film roles including “Stand by Me,” “Joe’s Apartment” and “Jerry Maguire,” along with TV work including roles on “Sliders,” “My Secret Identity” and “Crossing Jordan.”
Produced by Embassy Row, the new talk show is executive produced by Andy Cohen along with O’Connell and Michael Davies.
“Set to premiere this fall, each episode will feature host and executive producer Jerry O’Connell, alongside a panel of male celebrities, comics and tastemakers, discussing the buzziest Bravo moments and a variety of topics steeped in pop culture.” Bravo said in the announcement. “An avid Bravo viewer, Jerry has proven he’s not shy when it comes to weighing in on the network’s programming. From offering advice to ‘The Real Housewives’ from every franchise to taking sides on some of the most controversial Bravo feuds, Jerry is truly a walking encyclopedia of Bravo history.”
The announcement adds: “‘Real Men Watch Bravo’ will offer unprecedented access to the male point of view pertaining to all things Bravo and entertainment. Whether realizing they were a die-hard ‘Vanderpump Rules’ fan after being introduced to the sizzling series by their girlfriends or learning how to cook the perfect filet from binging ‘Top Chef’ episodes for hours, these men are unapologetic Bravoholics and hope to encourage others to step out of the shadows and admit what some have known all along … Real Men Watch Bravo.”
