The daytime gameshow is a remake of the classic series hosted by Monty Hall, where contestants are urged to pick either doors number one, two or three for cash and prizes. The TV icon told The AP that he approves of the former Whose Line Is It Anyway? host's casting.
"We needed someone who could ad lib, be charming, work with contestants and run the show," said Hall, who had been wooing Brady without success for a while before he prevailed.
Brady said that he sees the gig as another step towards being a multi-talented performer, like his idol Sammy Davis Jr. "I'm an actor first and foremost, who happens to do improv. I've also done sitcoms, I've done stage."
He added that his final step will be an epitaph that reads: "This guy did just about everything you could do in the entertainment business and was good at it all."
