‘Faith,’ ‘Wing’ set guests

Polo goes 'West' while Ripa finds new 'Hope'

The producers of “Hope & Faith” didn’t have to look far to find a love interest for Kelly Ripa’s character, while Teri Polo (“I’m With Her”) is heading to “The West Wing.”

In a busy day for guest casting, Mark Consuelos, Ripa’s real-life hubby, has signed on to appear in three episodes of wife’s ABC laffer. He’ll play a baseball player named the Gooch who moves into the house next door — and quickly falls for her.

Consuelos, who worked onscreen with Ripa when both were regulars on ABC’s “All My Children,” is in Toronto shooting the Lifetime drama skein “Missing.” He’ll tape his “Hope & Faith” segs in November and December, with the episodes likely to air in February.

Meanwhile, Polo will play Jimmy Smits’ wife in at least four episodes of NBC’s “West Wing” this season. She’s also attached to appear in 12 more segs next season, should the skein be renewed.

Polo appeared in last season’s ABC laffer “I’m With Her,” and she reprises her role as Ben Stiller’s fiancee in next month’s “Meet the Fockers.”
