Cedric The Entertainer to Replace Vieira as Host of WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE

Deadline reports that Cedric the Entertainer will replace Meredith Vieira as host of the Disney-ABC sydicated game show WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE. According to the report, the comedian has closed a "multi-million" dollar deal in which he will receive a salary close to what Vierira was bringing in on her final season of the quiz show.

Vieira took the reins of 'Millionaire' from Regis Philbin in 2002. She will continue to be seen on pre-taped all-new episodes through May and continue in re-runs which will air through the summer. Cedric is scheduled to begin his hosting duties in Septemter.

The actor, comedian and director is best known as the co-star of the WB sitcom The StEve Harvey Show, as Eddie in the Barbershop films, and as one of the four comedians featured in the Spike Lee film The Original Kings of Comedy. He currently has the lead role in the sitcom The Soul Man on TV Land.
