Barbara Walter’s is back, even though last year was supposedly the last year for her tv special. The former ‘View’ co-host said in a statement that, “I was absolutely delighted when ABC approached me to do another year of ‘10 Most Fascinating People’”, while also adding, “I know we said last year was our last, but there are just too many fascinating people out there… and you never pass up the opportunity to interview Oprah, Neil, Chelsea, or Scarlett.”
Those four listed above are seat to all have one-on-one interviews with the famous journalist. Each have had interesting years. Oprah always has something new going out, and it will be interesting to watch her be the one asked the questions.
Scarlett Johansson got engaged last year, recently had a baby, and is taking on some of the largest roles in the industry. She is reprising her role as the Natasha Romanoff (aka the Black Widow) in the highly anticipated ‘Avengers 2’, and earlier this year was in another Marvel movie, ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’. The twenty-nine year old doesn’t just do blockbuster movies, but smaller scale productions as well.
Chelsea Handler, 39, left her talk show at E! and is now working on other projects, one including a deal with Netflix. Neil Patrick Harris has had quite the year as well. Harris, 41, got married to long time partner David Burtka, 39, his popular show ‘How I Met Your Mother’ ended after 9 seasons, used his comedic skills in ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’, recently starred in ‘Gone Girl’, and will be the next host of the Oscars.
Tune in December 14th on ABC to see where these four rank on the list, and who is ‘most fascinating’.
