Here's renowned actor, director, and reader of children's books delivering a stirring narration of Go the F**K to Sleep. For charity. In a Captain Planet t-shirt.
You've heard of the wonderful, phenomenal success actor LeVar Burton has had on Kickstarter in his attempt to bring back Reading Rainbow to a new generation. But with just a little more help, Burton can bring the show to 7,500 classrooms free — and all you need to do is let the cast of Star Trek read to you.
