Louis C.K., Matthew Weiner, Al Franken and Jonathan Franzen to appear on 'Jeopardy!'

Louis C.K., Matthew Weiner, Jonathan Franzen and Sen. Al Franken will appear on "Jeopardy!"

No, this isn't the setup for an "SNL" skit. The Emmy-winning comedian, creator of "Mad Men," author of "The Corrections" and junior senator from the great state of Minnesota are among the newsmakers and pundits who will compete for charity on the long-running quiz show during its "Power Players Week." 

The winner of each game will earn at least $50,000 for his or her charity of choice, while even the losers will earn a cool $10,000. "Power Players Week" will air in syndication May 16-20.

Also scheduled to appear are CNN hosts Kate Bolduan and Anderson Cooper, conservative commentator S.E. Cupp, political analyst David Gregory, Washington Post journalist Jonathan Capehart, ABC legal correspondent Sunny Hostin, former MSNBC host and academic Melissa Harris-Perry,  "60 Minutes" correspondent Lara Logan, Republican strategist Ana Navarro, MSNBC political analyst Michael Steele and "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd. 

We have just one question: Where's Sean Connery?
