SHARE Perez, Wallace complete ‘View’ panel

With the announcement by ABC Thursday that actress Rosie Perez and political veteran Nicolle Wallace were joining “The View,” the hosting panel of the long-running daily chatfest is now complete.

The duo will join returning moderator Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell — whose own return to her former weekday TV gig was announced earlier this summer.

“The View” creator Barbara Walters retired earlier this spring, and Chicago natives Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd left the show at the end of this past season.

The new lineup will be unveiled when the show’s new season launches Sept. 15.

Perez, 49, has starred in such well-known films as “White Men Can’t Jump” and “Pineapple Express.

Wallace, 42, is an author, political analyst and worked for former President George W. Bush.
