Tony winner and all-around Broadway favorite Mandy Patinkin made a surprise appearance on the April 4 episode of Jeopardy! giving the clues, via video, for an entire category on Ben Franklin. What's the connection? The star lends his voice to founding father in the Ken Burns documentary Ben Franklin, now airing on PBS.
Watch the Jeopardy! category in the video above. We bet your many viewings of Hamilton will give you at least one correct answer (in the form of a question, naturally).
The two-part Ben Franklin documentary began airing on PBS April 4, but check local listings for broadcast and streaming availability. Check out the video below of Patinkin and Burns appearing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to talk about the doc, why Patinkin was the perfect choice to voice Franklin, and some of the surprising things Patinkin learned about the Revolutionary diplomat and ladies' man.
