Oprah lands interview with David Arquette

Michael Vick may have backed out of his upcoming "Oprah Winfrey Show" appearance, but the talk show host has landed herself an equally controversial guest for the episode.

According to a rep for the show, David Arquette will appear in a sit-down with Winfrey on February 24.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Vick, who served 21 months on dog fighting charges, was initially booked for that day but suddenly canceled for personal reasons, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"We're not going to push it," Winfrey said, adding that production had already begun on Vick's episode. "We did a field trip with him. We had been shooting with Michael Vick. And the fact that he pulled out and all his people… We move on."

Indeed, Arquette will now be in the hot seat in his first televised interview since leaving rehab last month. Arquette, who split with wife Courteney Cox last October, taped his episode on February 17.

    Vick held how many press conferences? I'm sure he explained himself enough times already. But some of yall are right let's just give him the death penalty for killing dogs but keep letting pedophiles get probation or priests not getting anything. Stop sweatin my boy Vick!!!

    Howard Stern already got a few interviews with David Arquette well before this. Oprah will bring nothing new or entertaining out of him. Arquette is not meant to be censored.

Why doesn't she have her messiah, Oblama, on and ask him why the economy's still in the toilet?...or maybe the whereabouts of his college transcripts?...or birth certificate?

    Vick is a grown man that served his time for what he did. There are men out here getting less time for raping and abusing women then he got; and even they get out and re allowed to work. His craft just happens to be football; and he's good at it. Stupidity can be contagious, some of you should stay away from crowds. P.S. Quit hatin on people that have it goin on, its harder to work than blog

    Micheal Vick is a punk. He killed defenseless dogs for what reason. He does his time, then becomes a starting qb. He goes around talking to kids for the humane society, but he wouldn't talk to oprah. He's just afraid to have a conversation with a adult about what he did. He doesn't deserve to be on a football field ever again!

    My sources report that Vick is shy about this interview due to the number of dead dogs found to have been infected with genital herpes. DNA testing reveals Vick was the perp.

"stupid fish don't get caught, until they open their mouth" and you are 1 stupid fish! Oprah, congrats to your new network. And I hope your endeavors continue to bring you joy.

    Mike vick did his time. He is not required to speak with anyone. Murderes don't get out of jail and speak about killing people everyday. While I agree he should never own a dog he should be allowed to live his life now

    Who is David Arquette and why do I care? Michael Vick continues his cowardly ways. First toturing and killing dogs, in front of other dogs so they could see what would happen to them if they don't fight hard. Now he's scrared of Oprah. Michael Vick is a disgusting ex-con who should not be even in the NFL. Dog killers never change or lose that killing urge. He will use his new contract money to torture more dogs, sadly.

      Oprah loves dogs ...I think Vick chickened out. Would have been good if she'd have given him a grilling but then again, I don't think he deserves the oxygen of publicity ever again. But landing an interview with - who? This is a headline??
