Creator and judge Simon Cowell is "very interested" in the Client List star, who released four studio albums between 1992 and 2002, a source tells Us. TVGuide.com's e-mails to Fox and a rep for Hewitt were not immediately returned.
Other celebs being considered to replace departing judges L.A. Reid and Britney Spears include Kelly Rowland (a former judge on the UK version of X Factor) and Reba McEntire, according to the report. Cowell and Demi Lovato are both returning.
