Ryan Seacrest Manages Best Wingman Move Yet With Tanya Rad, Zachary Levi

Have we officially found Tanya Rad’s soulmate?! Zachary Levi stopped by the studio on Friday, March 29, for his latest film Shazam! and Ryan Seacrest pulled his best wingman moves yet. 

In case you missed it, Tanya Rad revealed on-air that she feels like Zachary “might be her husband” so naturally when we found out he was coming in the studio, we had to figure out a way to find out if they have chemistry.

Ryan’s cohost Sisanie came up with the genius idea inspired by a Friends episode to have Tanya and Zachary discuss their “go-to” dating moves.

“What if we did something with them and I ask Zachary ‘What’s your move? Pretend you’re on a date. What’s your move?’” Sisanie suggested before Zachary joined us in studio. “… We have to say that we were like talking about it before,” Sis added. “Like we were talking about ice breakers.”


With the plan in place, after we talked about the film Shazam! — in which Zachary plays Billy Batson, a streetwise 14-year-old who can magically transform into the adult superhero Shazam simply by shouting out one word — it all went down — and oh so perfectly! 

“Tanya’s been waiting to tell you that,” Ryan said after “BDE” magically got brought up.

“By the way, I’m kind of aware,” Zachary said. “I’ve had people send me clips, video and audio clips, of the discussions that you have occasionally about me.”



Ryan then set it up, bringing up the ice breaker “topic.” 

“The romantic-love-dating-situation — guys, girls — the roles that we play,” Zachary mentioned, “We’re in a very interesting kind of flex right now and I think people are trying to figure out the appropriate way to court somebody and is that even the guys job anymore?”

“Let’s assume it’s not for this exercise,” Ryan then quipped. “And dim the lights and we’re gone — Tanya, how would you ice break with Zachary Levi?”

And then it all went down. Watch back the videos above to see the magic unfold and swoon all over again. Do you think they could be a fit?

Catch Shazam! out in theaters April 5.
