Rosie Perez Leaves 'The View' to Pursue Acting

Perez spent almost a year on the ABC show.

"Stepping into the role of talk show host at the same time she has been starring on Broadway has been incredibly impressive," said Executive Producer Bill Wolff in an email to staff. "And beyond being an enormously talented performer, Rosie is a dedicated advocate who has brought passion and insight to the panel every day."

Perez joined ABC's "The View" in September 2014 along with Nicole Wallace, an author and MSNBC analyst.

"Rosie will always be a part of “The View” family, and we will welcome her back as a guest anytime to catch up," Wolff said.
