Larry King is coming back to TV -- but not as a talk show host.

The former CNN host has shot an infomercial for BreathGemz breath fresheners along with his wife, Shawn Southwick, according to AdAge.

King also has shot an ad for Walmart in which he interviews a 6-year-old girl about a fish that she caught with her father.

King said that, during most of his 25-year career working for CNN, he was restricted on promoting products and even turned down offers to do ads for Bayer aspirin and a Super Bowl ad for American Express.

Since leaving CNN last year, King also has done radio, TV and Internet ads for a Beverly Hills-based Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. franchise.
