“Celebrity Week” on “Millionaire” Begins November 4th
For the fourth year in a row, the stars will be coming to the million dollar table to win big money for charity. November 4th through the 8th is “Celebrity Week” on Who Wants to be a Millionaire. Cedric the Entertainer will welcome famous faces from the world of television and film to hopefully raise millions of dollars for the charity of their choice.
Starting the week is BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood star Boris Kodjoe. He will play for Sophie’s Voice Foundation, a charity created in 2008 by he and his wife in honor of their daughter Sophie who was diagnosed with Spina Bifida at birth. As a bonus which may excite some of you around here, Cedric offered Boris an extra $5,000 if he played his Millionaire game in just his undershirt. As you can imagine he said yes. Be sure to watch Monday and Tuesday to see how it all unfolds.
Following him is Everybody Loves Raymond star Brad Garrett playing for Maximum Hope Foundation. They provide practical assistance to families caring for a child with life-limiting illness. Josh Malina follows him. Josh, who stars on ABC’s Scandal, plays for The Shark Fund which provides funding for an LA area public school to enhance various programs. Finally, Cedric’s on-screen wife on TVLand’s The Soul Man, Niecy Nash, tries her luck. She plays for the Amazing Grace Conservatory which offers performing arts programs to at-risk children.
Each charity is guaranteed $10,000. How much will they get, though? Will we see the second million dollar question of the season? Be sure to watch and find out.
