Gray’s vet Chandra Wilson takes ABC’s first movie star wheel of fortune for a spin – 2021 FIRST LOOK
Chandra Wilson is a self-proclaimed rock star. The Grey’s Anatomy vet, who starred in the premiere of ABC’s Celebrity Wheel of Fortune (airing Thursday Jan. 7th 8/7c), gets grilled lightly by him Host Pat Sajak on the A-Lister she is most often mistaken for.
“Chris Rock”, the actress behind Miranda Bailey, cracks the exclusive clip above. The joke is all the more amusing – at least in Sajak’s eyes – as it directly follows competitor Leslie Jones’ claim that Rock is also her unofficial doppelganger. (You have to watch the clip to see who identifies player # 3, professional skateboarder Tony Hawk, as his celebrity look.)
Other showbizers in the Wheel offshoot with eight episodes are Karamo Brown (Queer Eye), Nicole Byer (Nailed It!), Drew Carey (The price is right), Rachael Leigh Cook (Perception), Robert Herjavec (Shark Tank) and Jeannie Mai ( The Real), E! News Vet Maria Menounos, Patton Oswalt (AP Bio), Alfonso Ribeiro (Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, America’s Funniest Home Videos), Sherri Shepherd (trial and error), Joe Tessitore from ESPN and Constance Zimmer (Unreal).
The talent gathered will compete for a chance to win $ 1 million for a charity of their choice. In the first episode, Jones, Wilson and Hawk star for Feeding America, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and Feeding San Diego.
