Ryan Seacrest

Celebration of Dick Clark

EXCLUSIVE

122512_ryan_seacrest_launch
Ryan Seacrest tells TMZ ... the countdown to 2013 will be a special one, because he'll be honoring his late friend and mentor ... the great Dick Clark.

Seacrest was leaving a birthday lunch at Cecconi's in West Hollywood when we asked him how he felt  about this year's NYE show .... the first one since Dick passed away back in April.

"I miss him," Seacrest told us ... adding, "I'm excited about New Year's though to celebrate him ... it'll be a fun night."

Clark hand-selected Seacrest to take over the main hosting gig on New Year's Rockin' Eve after he  suffered a stroke back in 2004.

As for Ryan -- he turned 38 years old yesterday ... and doesn't look a day over 40.

I'm sure Dick hand-selected him for that gig. Everyone knows Ryan was being passed around to these higher ups, that's how went from being a host to having all these gigs. Sucking dcks does pay, uh Ryan?

I never believed in Satan, until I saw the success of Ryan Seacrest. He made a deal, and how.

Thanks to Ryan for the tribute. I new Dick Clark and he was a great guy. He saw talent in those who at times questioned their ability. God's speed, Dick.

Dang, if you ain't got nothing better to do New Year's Eve than watch this show, get a life. Read a book or watch paint dry. Turn the TV off and grow a brain.
