Drew Carey Interview

Interview: Drew Carey On The New Season Of ‘The Price Is Right

Adapted From: newyork.cbslocal.com

MW- Good morning Drew, how are you?

DC- Great Matt, how are you?

MW- Just fine! Congratulations on your ten year anniversary as host of The Price Is Right. I want to take you back a decade, how did you get involved with the show in the first place?

DC- I was kind of retired, didn’t want to do any more TV, I was having fun, traveling, relaxing. Michael Davies who was a producer I knew came up with an idea for a game show and he contacted me and wanted to know if I wanted to do it. It was part-time in New York so I would have to fly to New York a couple of times a month, tape a bunch of shows and he convinced me to do it. It wouldn’t be as many hours a week as a sitcom so I could still relax and he said he would work around my schedule.

So I went out to New York to do the pilot, I did the pilot on a Monday and that weekend I was going to go on a driving trip back to LA because I had all this extra time. So I was driving back to LA, I stopped at a restaurant and I had a message on my phone from my agent, and I had been taking acting lessons because I thought maybe I’d do some small parts in movies for fun, and my agent said he got this really interesting call from CBS casting and I thought, oh maybe they want me for a CSI or one of the dramas. So I said oh really and he said yea how’d you like to take over for Bob Barker on The Price Is Right and I was like “WHAT?!” Right away I said no but when I got back to LA my agent said CBS reached out again, so I had a meeting with The Price Is Right people and by the time the meeting was over I really wanted to do the show. We had a dinner meeting and they told me all about the show and how it worked and by the time that meeting was over I was sure I wanted to do it. So I told my agent, they started negotiating a contract and here I was, just that easy.
