ABC's "The View" has confirmed that Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace will join as co-hosts, along with moderator Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell.

The new season of the daytime talk show premieres Sept. 15.

Perez is known for movies like "Do the Right Thing" and "White Men Can't Jump." She received an Oscar nomination for the 1993 film "Fearless."

"I am beyond thrilled, honored and completely surprised that I've been asked to join 'The View,'" Perez said. "Knowing that I'll be in the company of Whoopi, Rosie and Nicolle, three very smart and engaging women that I have an immense amount of respect for, makes it even more unbelievable."

Wallace, an author and a Republican political analyst for MSNBC, called the new job "both humbling and incredibly exciting."

"I am honored to join the tradition of compelling conversations that has been the signature of 'The View' for the better part of two decades," Wallace said.

Wallace was the communications chief under President George W. Bush and senior adviser for the McCain-Pain campaign in 2008.

"The View" got new leadership over the summer, with Bill Wolff taking over as executive producer and Brian Balthazar as co-executive producer. "The View" has also moved to the ABC Broadcast Center and will have a new set with an on-camera social media station, new logo and a new color scheme.
