Regis Francis Xavier Philbin (born August 25, 1931) is an Emmy Award-winning         
American television personality and occasional actor known for his roles as a       
talk show host, game show host, and presenter at various events. Appearing on       
television since the late 1950s, Philbin is often called (somewhat tongue-in-cheek   
and alternately attributed to James Brown), "the hardest working man in show         
business" and holds the Guinness World Record for the most time spent in             
front of a television camera. His trademarks include his excited manner, his New     
York Bronx accent, and irreverent ad-libs. He is most widely known for Live with     
Regis and Kelly, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and for hosting the first season     
of America's Got Talent.
