Listen in, Kelly Ripa!

During Christian Slater appearance on Thursday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the actor officially throws his hat into the ring of candidates vying to be Ripa’s new Live! co-host following Michael Strahan’s move to Good Morning America.

“I live about six blocks away from there, it’s right there in the city,” Slater said of the New York set’s location. “It’s one of the greatest jobs ever. I love her, she’s amazing. Kelly! I’m available! Let’s do it!”

Slater also assured DeGeneres that he would “absolutely” be able to balance hosting with his gig on his USA Network series Mr. Robot.
