Brian Dunkleman has found work! The humane folks at Live With Regis and Kelly have hired the former American Idol reject to serve as a judge during its upcoming co-host talent search. The contest which is intended to pass the time during Kelly Ripa's maternity leave will culminate with the winner working as Regis Philbin's sidekick on the April 16 show. The victor also gets a $10,000 contract with Buena Vista Television to work on possible TV projects. Somewhere, Dunkleman is thinking, "Can I apply?"
