(LOS ANGELES) -- It's no secret that Fox's X Factor needs a few more judges, and now actress Jennifer Love Hewitt's name has been thrown in the mix.
Sources tell US Weekly the 34-year-old actress may join Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato on the judges' panel.
The source adds that "Simon is very interested" in the idea of Love Hewitt joining the show. A rep for the singing competition however downplayed the report, telling the magazine the story "is pure speculation."
Other sources tell E! News that Love Hewitt is not joining The X Factor.
Britney Spears and L.A. Reid already announced they won't be returning for season three this fall.
Other celebs rumored to be in the running to be an X Factor judge include Ne-Yo, Reba McEntire and Kelly Rowland, but nothing has been confirmed.
One person that is definitely on board for next season is Mario Lopez, who is officially returning to host X Factor, but without his reality star sidekick Khloe Kardashian.
