Twitter is campaigning for one beloved celeb to succeed Alex Trebek as full-time Jeopardy MC — former “Reading Rainbow” host LeVar Burton.
The petition comes amid a feverish push on Twitter for the wholesome television icon to host the gameshow.
Becoming “Jeopardy!” host would no doubt prove a major feather in the cap for Burton, who is best-known for his 23-year stint hosting children’s program “Reading Rainbow.”
The Emmy-winning actor and director also memorably played Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge in “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” and Kunta Kinte in the groundbreaking ABC miniseries “Roots” (1977).
He’s one of a grab-bag of celebrities nominated to fill the shoes of Alex Trebek, after the long-time “Jeopardy!” host tragically passed away after a brave public battle against pancreatic cancer last year.
