‘Jeopardy!’ Contestant Starred in ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’

‘Jeopardy!’ surprised some viewers Monday night when former child actor Paris Themmen appeared on the game show. Forty seven years may have passed, but eagle-eyed viewers immediately recognized Themmen, now 58, as the kid who played the TV-obsessed Mike Teevee in 1971's ‘Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory.’ Host Alex Trebek made no mention of Themmen’s role in the children’s cult classic when he introduced him to viewers.
