Ryan Reynolds shares a tweet supporting LeVar Burton as the following host of “Jeopardy!” following Mike Richards’ exit.
Mike announced last week that he’s stepping down from his position as the “Jeopardy!” host after unseemly remarks he recently made on a podcast.
I have said many times over these past weeks that no matter the outcome, I’ve won. The outpouring of love and support from family, friends, and fans alike has been incredible! If love is the ultimate blessing and I believe that it is, I am truly blessed beyond measure. 🙏🏾— LeVar Burton (@levarburton) August 5, 2021
The Deadpool Actor tweeted, “Pretty consistently from 2013 to 2015 Deadpool would explode on Twitter with fans wanting me to play him. It was awkward because I agreed with them but the studio didn’t see it. Ultimately the fans won and the rest is glorious history. I’m forever grateful. Hi @levarburton”

Reactions to Ryan Reynolds In Supporting LeVar Burton As The New Host In Jeopardy!
Hey @Jeopardy,— Heather ACAB Feathers (@CraftyKissa) August 23, 2021
Don’t take 2 years to do the right thing. You’ll make more money just hiring @levarburton now and getting us to care again.
Someone who’s fallen out of love, aside from the 5 shows Mr. Burton hosted. https://t.co/OO9cUysDBE
It was obvious from the start that @levarburton should be new host of @Jeopardy, but studios can’t have an intelligent, passionate, black man as the host of an icon tv show b/c it doesn’t fit the need to uphold negative stereotypes. Levar Burton is the perfect host for the show! https://t.co/ueDI5dTszs— Radical Comedian Krish Mohan #FreeAssange (@KrishMohanHaha) August 22, 2021
