He's a silver-haired CNN anchor who recently got his own talk show. Who is Anderson Cooper?

The giggling newsman is going to be on Jeopardy for the game show's "Power Players Week."

Cooper, who is one of 15 celebrity contestants to appear on "America's Favorite Quiz Show" beginning Monday, is hoping to win $50,000 for the charity of his choice, The Trevor Project.

He'll compete on Friday's episode against NBC News's Kelly O'Donnell, who is playing for Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation, and The New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman, who is playing for Conservation International.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews, basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and comedian Lewis Black are among the others playing for charity.
