Biden bumps Criss Angel off ‘Larry King’

Joe Biden has bumped Criss Angel’s latest appearance on CNN’s "Larry King Live."

The network will air an interview with the vice president-elect this evening instead of a previously recoded interview with Angel that originally was scheduled to air tonight.

Angel’s hour-long interview with the cable news talk show host will now be broadcast on New Year's Eve, Angel’s publicist said.

It will be the third time the magician has appeared on the program. A self-professed magic fan, King has a small cameo appearance in a video portion of Angel’s Cirque du Soleil show, “Believe.”

Angel, 41, flew to L.A. on Nov. 20 to tape the segment.

During the interview, he and King discussed both of Angel’s shows, including A&E’s “Mindfreak,” which is about to go into its fifth season.

King also asked about Angel’s personal life and relationship with 28-year-old Playboy model Holly Madison.

The segment was recorded just three weeks into the couple’s emerging relationship.

Madison joined her then-new boyfriend on set for the final portion of the interview. She and Angel sat side-by-side and answered King’s questions for about 15 minutes, their publicist said.

The couple recently enjoyed a trip to Disneyland, then on Friday celebrated their birthdays at a joint party at LAX. The two were born 12 years and four days apart, Angel on Dec. 19 and Madison on Dec. 23.
