“The Talk” gets another new face. Aisha Tyler has joined CBS' daytime chat show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The 41-year-old actress/comedian starts her co-hosting duties today, alongside remaining stars Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and fellow newbie Sheryl Underwood.
In addition to her new gig, Tyler currently voices a character on animated FX series “Archer,” and stars in the upcoming Canadian action series “XIII."
In the comedy realm, Tyler starred in her own Comedy Central special, “Aisha Tyler Is Lit: Live at the Fillmore,” and has written a book, “Swerve: Reckless Observations of a Post-Modern Girl.”
And she has plenty of hosting experience: Aisha has guest-hosted on “The Talk,” CBS' “Late Late Show,” and was the first female host on E!'s “Talk Soup.” She even shot a talk show pilot for ABC in 2009.
