The so-called "hardest working man in Hollywood" just can't seem to stop adding to his workload.
Ryan Seacrest is reportedly in negotiations to host ABC's "American Idol" reboot, and he apparently isn't fazed by how many more hours of work and travel the gig would add to his already packed schedule. He recently discussed the logistics with Variety, calling it "doable." That may be the case, but it sounds intensely exhausting.
Hosting "Idol" would require Seacrest to be in Los Angeles to film live evening episodes. Then, he'd have to get back to New York City, where he now lives, co-hosts "Live with Kelly and Ryan," and also does his radio shows, "On Air With Ryan Seacrest" and "American Top 40 With Ryan Seacrest." Juggling it all would mean a lot of redeyes so he could be ready to join Kelly Ripa for their morning talk show.
Seacrest is certainly aware of the logistical challenges and how much travel would be required.
"That is one of the things I'm looking at, just on my globe, just what time the show ends and what time I start the next day in New York," he said.
That he thinks it would be worth it proves just how much he loves "Idol." For his sake, we hope he's good at sleeping on planes.
