Jimmy Kimmel may want to dig out his tux from his Oscars special because he’ll want to look sharp for his guest on Thursday.
EW can confirm that President Barack Obama will be appearing on the Thursday night episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! This marks the first time Obama is stopping by as president—he was last on the show in 2008 via satellite when he was still running for office. He’s of course appeared on other late night programs since (including a stop by the other late-night Jimmy’s show), but this will mark his first in-person interview on Kimmel’s show.
Kimmel and Obama have crossed paths since that 2008 interview, though. Kimmel hosted the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2012.
