Longtime "Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek will serve as moderator for a Pennsylvania gubernatorial debate in October, Philly.com reports.

Trebek, who once admitted he would have loved to have been one of those asking questions in a 2012 debate between President Barak Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney, will moderate a 45-minute debate as part of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry's annual dinner on Oct. 1, the website said.

All major candidates will be invited, included Democratic incumbent Tom Wolf and the winner of the Republican primary, Philly.com reported. That race includes attorney Laura Ellsworth, businessman Paul Mango and state Sen. Scott Wagner.

Trebek is a native of Canada and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1998, according to the website.

He was once quoted in The Hill say how much he would enjoy serving as a debate moderator.

"I would not let the politicians get away with standard responses,” he said. "I would try to pin them down, even though I might look bad doing it."
