Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live next week, ABC announced Thursday. Spicer, whose name was notably absent from yesterday's big reveal for the Season 25 cast of Dancing with the Stars, resigned as White House press secretary in late July and left the administration in August. Spicer served as press secretary for 182 days, or roughly 18 Scaramuccis.

The announcement of his scheduled appearance next Wednesday comes very shortly after Kimmel tweeted at Spicer inviting him to guest on the show (or, given the very close timing, teased the already agreed upon appearance with a little back and forth):

This will be Spicer's first television interview since officially leaving the White House, according to the Daily Beast.

Although Spicer's most notorious pillorying was, without question, the Melissa McCarthy impressions on Saturday Night Live, Kimmel didn't exactly go easy on him.
