Neil, however, admits guest-starring on Live! every once in a while is quite exciting. "The fun thing about Kelly is that you get to show up at 8:30 am, be on TV at 9, shoot the breeze, meet some fun people and then you're out by 10:07," the dad-of-two explained. "So it's a nice gig, but I wouldn't want to do it all year long."

The actor previously spoke out about his hopes of joining Kelly on Live!.
"I would do anything Kelly asked me, legal or illegal," the Stand by Me star told Closer Weekly in an exclusive interview. "I would do illegal things for Kelly that's how much I love her."
"I will tell you I have no idea what they're doing over there on that show, but I will say I will help out Kelly anyway I can. She is the best," Jerry continued.
