News   Is Wonder of the World Star Amy Sedaris the Next "Late Late Show" Talk Host? Busy stage and screen actress Amy Sedaris is reportedly at the top of a short list of names to replace late night talk host Craig Kilborn on CBS' "The Late Late Show," according to The New York Post.

The local daily purports that the "Strangers With Candy" star — whose film version of that television series has completely filming with the help of other late night host David Letterman's Worldwide Pants Inc. executive producing — may take on the post Letterman slot. The actress recently seen on the big screen in "Elf, "The School of Rock" and "Maid in Manhattan" will also be featured in the upcoming films "Romance & Cigarettes," "Neurotica," "Chicken Little" (in voice) and the remake of "Bewitched."

Sedaris' New York theatre credits include Wonder of the World, The Country Club, The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told and various Talent Family Plays (written with brother David Sedaris), as well as The Book of Liz. With Stephen Colbert (a "Daily Show with Jon Stewart" correspondent) and Paul Dinello, Sedaris has created "Exit 57" and "Strangers with Candy" for Comedy Central. The actress also has made appearances on TV's "Just Shoot Me" and "Sex and the City."

"Late Late Show" executive producer Rob Burnett however, told the Post, "I can tell you flat out that any rumor that is floating around about replacement hosts is completely false."

Kilborn will leave his post on the late night show after five years. The talker previously hosted Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" which has since been taken over Jon Stewart.
