Lopez to Co-Host Fox’s “The X Factor”?

He’s already beefed up his resume with a slew of producing credits… But Mario Lopez may soon be adding yet another on-camera gig to that already impressive document…

The 38-year-old Extra host and actor is reportedly in talks to co-host Fox’s The X Factor, as the show prepares to possibly go with a two-host format in its second season, according to several media outlets.

According to Perez Hilton, Khloe Kardashian is Simon Cowell‘s top pick to lead the show, with Lopez locked in to co-host.

TMZ, meanwhile, reports that singer/actor Corbin Bleu is also circling the coveted role, but he’ll have to  wait and hope that the negotiations with either Lopez or Kardashian fall apart to nab the job.

The sophomore season of the American version of The X Factor is currently in audition phase with Demi Lovato and Britney Spears sitting at the judges’ table alongside L.A. Reid and Cowell.
