Kyle MacLachlan, Michael Strahan to get 'Live! with Kelly'

desperate-housewives-kyle-maclachlan-before-orson-hodge.jpg Kyle MacLachlan, the "Desperate Housewives" regular who is probably best known for his role as Special Agent Dale Cooper on "Twin Peaks," will join Kelly Ripa as co-host on "Live! with Kelly" Monday, March 12. It would be fab if he did the entire show in character as Agent Cooper, but you know, that would probably be kind of weird.

Later that week, Kelly's husband -- Mark Consuelos -- will sit in for one day. Lucky him, it's the day Will Ferrell is scheduled to visit the show to talk about his movie "Casa de mi Padre."

ESPN talker Michael Strahan will finish out the week with Ripa. It's a welcome return to the show for the former New York Giant.  

Is anyone else thinking Kelly should just never choose a permanent co-host?
