That's actually a very good move for him! More people saw him on "Dancing with the Stars" than most of his cable shows combined. At least "Celebrity Apprentice" will be able to leverage his intelligence and not just his footwork. I think people might be surprised in a very positive way when they get to know him what he's really like. Hopefully he will do really well on the show!

Lol... if you look at the other "celebrities" on the show, he's actually one of the better known ones in that list!

Cool!

Arsenio Hall is reportedly in the cast, too. Hall is into magic. Maybe he and Penn can both sneak some magic in?

Years ago on the regular non-celebrity Apprentice, one contestant was a guy who was an amateur magician. He got fired before busting any magic out, though.

It is my guess that Penn will probably not be doing too much magic on the show. I'm guessing he'll throw in some juggling, some sideshow tricks but pure magic on its own is not his strongest skill. On the other hand, he is very intelligent and well read, so I'm thinking he might do very very well on the show.

When singers are on this show they typically don't sing, actors don't act, not sure why a magician is expected to do magic?

It appears to me that there are just as many non-secular charities and those associated with a connection to a church or religion: http://techskeptic.blogspot.com/2007/12/......ies.html

When Penn & Teller were on "Cash Cab" I believe they played for the Boys & Girls Club of Las Vegas. I would imagine it'd be the same chairity this time around.
