Looks like it’s a sweet quid pro quo for Jimmy Kimmel with former President Bill Clinton set to appear on the ABC host’s late night show on April 2. While he’s no stranger to the talk show circuit, this will actually be Clinton’s first time on Kimmel’s show. I’m sure it’s no coincidence that the announcement today comes less than a week after Kimmel hosted the closing night of the 42nd POTUS’ Clinton Global Initiative University confab at Arizona State. Clinton appeared onstage with Kimmel on March 22 for a joint chat with his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and daughter Chelsea. With that kind of star power all together, a selfie like Ellen DeGeneres‘ mega-retweeted Oscars version is of course in order – which is exactly what Kimmel did and posted it on his Twitter feed.

Wonder if we’ll see a selfie repeat performance next week? Kimmel is no stranger to Presidential level hijinks. He hosted the White House Correspondents Dinner back in 2012.
