Pat Kiernan, who this morning began his second guest-hosting stint on Live! With Kelly, isn’t the only celebrity openly campaigning for the gig. At a Google/Hollywood Reporter party this weekend in D.C.’s W Hotel, David Arquette told New York that he, too, wanted a tryout, but didn’t exactly get the same love as Kiernan. “I have asked. But she’s giving me a very cold shoulder,” he said. “I’ve given up on a shot. I’m bummed, but I’m fine.” Arquette doesn’t have a news-hosting background, so how would he sell himself for the job, we wondered? “My pitch would be, people love me and I love people! That’s what I think Regis had.”
