Reportedly, E!'s reality darling is up for the hosting gig.
With FOX’s upcoming season of Glee taking on a life outside of McKinley High on the upcoming season, its cast may have some extra time to explore other opportunities.

That may be the case for star Kevin McHale who’s now reportedly being considered for a co-hosting position on the network’s sophomore season of The X Factor.

According to TV Guide magazine, the 24-year-old triple-threat may have gotten FOX’s attention after hosting this year’s Teen Choice Awards.

Apparently, it wouldn’t be the first time McHale would be connected to the FOX competition either. He shot a behind-the-scenes featurette for the show and sponsor, Pepsi, during last season’s premiere.

This news follows earlier reports on Tuesday that E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Khloe Kardashian is also being considered for the hosting gig.

Other stars who are reportedly in the running include Mario Lopez, Miley Cyrus, Kelly Osbourne, Stacy Keibler and Erin Andrews. Executive producer and judge Simon Cowell has gone on record as saying that he wants two judges — a male and female. So, there are probably two spots to fill.

Former host Steve Jones was a victim of last January’s bloodbath when Cowell fired the British personality along with both female judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. Spears and Lovato were hired in April.

Time is ticking away on casting the show’s hosts. Initial open call auditions were completed in May and the show returns on Wednesday, Sept. 12.

McHale’s publicist and the FOX show’s reps declined Celebuzz’s request for comment.
