Jerry O'Connell is heading to Bravo!

The 44-year-old actor is set to host Real Men Watch Bravo, a new late-night talk show executive produced by Andy Cohen.

According to the press release, the show, which is set to debut this fall, will feature "a panel of male celebrities, comics and tastemakers, discussing the buzziest Bravo moments and a variety of topics steeped in pop culture."

Bravo said that the show "will offer unprecedented access to the male point of view pertaining to all things Bravo and entertainment," something O'Connell has already been known to do.
