Jerry O'Connell wants to get back into theater acting.

When we asked Jerry which avenue of performing he likes best at this point in his career, he shared some insight into what he would like to do next. Of course he has multiple hosting duties on daytime and evening TV right now, but his heart is still in acting. And, Jerry told Distractify, he would like to make a transition into theater, in which he already has experience.

"I miss acting on the stage," Jerry shared. "I've been in three Broadway shows and, you know, theater in LA is getting pretty hot right now. I keep auditioning for plays here in LA. I haven't quite made it yet, but I'm gonna keep trying."

Jerry O'Connell recently added game show host to his résumé.

In September 2022, Fox premiered Pictionary with Jerry as its host. He told us the big thing he likes about being on the show is giving people money. In fact, he finds it hard not to try and help guide contestants in the right direction in each episode to ensure they win.

And although he doesn't yet know about a second season, he's having fun with the new gig.

Jerry also filmed the first season of the reality dating competition show The Real Love Boat with his wife, Rebecca Romijn. He told us that The Real Love Boat "is the reality version" of the original series of the same name, wherein characters sought out love aboard a cruise ship.

But, he added, this show also includes elements of Survivor and The Amazing Race while he and his wife "try to hook people up along the way."
