NEW YORK, Sept. 27 (UPI) -- A bevy of stars will battle it out with their brains this fall when the venerable U.S. television series "Jeopardy" marks its 5,000th episode.

The two-week "Celebrity Jeopardy" tournament will be aired in November and will feature actors Martin Short and Susan Lucci, TV hosts Rachel Ray and Nancy Grace, and Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling.

Also on the roster are Paul Schaefer, Neil Patrick Harris, Soledad O'Brien and Regis Philbin.

Host Alex Trebek said in a news release issued Wednesday that the celebrities will compete for some $1 million in prize money, which will be donated to their favorite charities.

Taping will take place at Radio City Music Hall in New York Oct. 5, 7 and 8. The tournament will be aired Nov. 8-21.
