Dane Cook Was Asked To Be a Guest Host on 'Jeopardy!'

It looks like Dane Cook might be one of the interim guest hosts for Jeopardy!

The 48-year-old comedian revealed to his fans on Twitter that the show called his team to see his interest in appearing as a host on the show, following Alex Trebek‘s passing earlier in the month.

“I could barely spit out, ‘WHAT IS.. YES?’ quick enough,” Dane shared of his answer to their question. “I hope this can happen. I would love to honor Alex Trebek in that fashion!”

Back in 2018, Dane, who is an avid watcher of the program, was featured on the show as a question.

“I love Jeopardy, I can just watch it and get away from it all,” he joked just ahead of the question that was featured.

The question referenced his half brother, who had embezzled millions of dollars from him while working as his business manager earlier in the decade.

If you missed it, Jeopardy! announced the first guest host on the program and his name might be familiar to you. See who it is here!
