David Arquette to host game show

London: Actor-director David Arquette is set to host a new celebrity game show.

The 39-year-old actor says he was inspired to get involved with ‘Ranking The Stars’, based on a Japanese programme as it forces celebrities to make fun of themselves.

"A lot of my humour is from a self-deprecating place anyway. My flaws are what make me funny, and I have no problem letting people poke fun at that," contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.

The show will ask a group of celebrities to rate one another on certain topics such as secretly informing the paparazzi about their whereabouts or making a sex tape.

Roy Bank, executive producer of the show, thinks David is the perfect man for the programme.

"This show is all about celebrities hanging out for a bit and taking their guard down. David`s whole persona is that. His honesty has bled through and it`s come back to haunt him a few times. If there was ever a celebrity with a brand that matches the show, it`s this," said Roy.
