Marissa Jaret Winokur is rumored to be trading in her dancing shoes for a seat on the small screen. The New York Post reports that the Tony-winning actress has nabbed a deal to host a talk show. Winokur, a favorite on this season's "Dancing with the Stars," has gained popularity for her winning smile and big personality.
Call it the Tracy Turnblad gift -- the same role that made Winokur a star on Broadway is also the one that catapulted Ricki Lake into notoriety in John Waters' hit "Hairspray." Lake went on to host her daytime talk show for eleven years!
