Tom Gilbert, Actor Who Portrays TV's Regis Philbin, To Leave 'Regis & Kelly' Show

NEW YORK—Actor Tom Gilbert, who for the past 44 years has portrayed the popular television personality Regis Philbin, announced last week he will be leaving the long-running morning program Live With Regis & Kelly, saying he has taken the beloved Regis character "as far as it can go."

The London-born actor told reporters that when he created the Philbin persona for The Joey Bishop Show in 1967, he never expected the character's spirited wisecracks and relentless energy to be so widely embraced by audiences.

Producers of Live With Regis confirmed they are currently in talks to fill the role of Regis Philbin with actor Michael Zajackowski, best known for his work portraying TV's Noah Wyle.
