The search is over. Let the debates soon begin!

Deadline reports that actress Rosie Perez and political commentator Nicolle Wallace will join the new season of The View when it kicks off on September 15.

They will succeed Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd in this capacity, joining (a returning) Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg each morning on ABC.

Wallace was considered a candidate for the gig all summer long, though Perez (who we'll always adore for her role in White Men Can't Jump) is a surprise.

She did guest host back in February, however.

Wallace, meanwhile, served as communications director for George W. Bush.
