“I get asked that question a bunch, and at the end of the day, there’s no obligation for anybody to cast anybody in any role unless it’s someone they believe is the best for that role in the movie. I think initially he wanted to separate himself from the show, but I don’t see why he can’t now. There’s not reason anymore.

On his new game show “Spell-mageddon” he’s challenging people who should know how to spell like former spelling be champions and the like to spell the words correctly. The catch is – they’ve got to do it while they’re being distracted.
“We’ve got one game called “Zapped” that zaps them with electricity while they’re’ trying to spell, we have a microphone that shoots water in their face, we have a fire extinguisher that goes off in their back, blue icy slush gets dumped over their head and they don’t know when they’re going to get hit with any of it,” Ribeiro explains. “The reactions that the contestants give us are hysterical. It’s a fun, fun show and we have a blast.”
“Spell-mageddon” airs on ABC Family on Wednesdays at 9 p.m.
