Helen Mirren tapped to host Harry Potter quiz show
« on: September 15, 2021, 01:37:26 PM »
WarnerMedia wants to call it a "trivia event" or "competition series," but it sounds like a game show to me.

The show will air "later this year" on Cartoon Network, TBS and HBO Max.

Given Mirren's acting career, one can argue that she may be the performer with the most-prestigious resume to be called upon to host a game show.

If I'm not mistaken, only the second owner of an Oscar to host a game show, following Jamie Foxx.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.

Love it! Years ago, she was one of my dream picks to host syndie Weakest Link when that role was up in the air.
As a Harry Potter fan, I think this sounds pretty neat.

"News" should be when an actor/actress is not tapped to host a game show these days.
Things happen to people who drink Fiasco!

That was one of the biggest entertainment stories of the summer, until. . .

"Competative"  winners yes, but Groucho has an honorary Oscar.
