Seacrest guest-hosted "Larry King Live" on several occasions. (He's pictured here interviewing newly wed pop singer Jessica Simpson and singer Nick Lachey; he also interviewed Nicole Richie and Ashton Kutcher on separate programs.) King liked Seacrest's work so much that when King retired, he told CBS News, "If it was up to me, I'd have Ryan Seacrest [replace me]." Seacrest, along with Bill Maher, co-hosted King's final program, on Dec. 16, 2010.
