Petition Growing To Have LeVar Burton As The New Host Of ‘Jeopardy!’

There’s a petition circulating asking that LeVar Burton be considered for the job as the new host of “Jeopardy!”

The petition is on Change.org and describes Burton’s career as the perfect choice to host ‘Jeopardy!’ because of his 21 seasons of PBS’ “Reading Rainbow,” Geordi La Forge on Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as Kunta Kinte in the Alex Haley mini-series “Roots.” Change.org said that Burton has “shaped the minds of several generations of trivia-loving nerds.”

Burton wasn’t sure about the petition but changed his mind after seeing close to 200,000 signatures so far. He reposted the link to the petition with the caption, “Leaving this here in the event the powers that be are listening…”
