A release from the network says the Oct. 25 interview will find Obama encouraging Americans to exercise their right to vote -- while "Kimmel will encourage the First Lady to eat more pizza."

The Obamas have been more active on the late-night circuit of late than the Romneys, with President Obama stopping by Late Night With David Letterman and The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.
