LeVar Burton — trending Now!

LeVar Burton. LeVar Burton — who and why the heck is he trending? Well Burton was made famous for his legendary role in the TV movie series “Roots”, he was magnificent and mysterious with his shielded eyes in “Star Trek: Next Generation”, and if you had kids, or were one recently, then you totally know him from PSB’s “Reading Rainbow”. Yes, LeVar Burton got around.

But where has the dad of two been lately? He seemed to have all but dropped off the face of the earth (if the earth is getting significant roles booked). But he is making a return to TV in a cameo role on Thursday night’s episode of Community on NBC.  He plays himself, tormenting a character on the show who has a total Star Trek obsession.

Congrats LeVar — we are thrilled to see more “new” roles!
