The former White House press secretary will appear on Sept. 13.

Now out of the White House, where he became a household name, Sean Spicer is actively weighing a future that involves opportunities in television. So, it makes sense that he's appearing next Wednesday, Sept. 13, on Jimmy Kimmel's late-night show, the network announced Thursday afternoon.

The appearance will be Spicer's first since leaving the White House at the end of August. He relinquished his White House press secretary role to Sarah Huckabee Sanders in July.

On Twitter, Kimmel posted a picture of the host wearing a Navy hat and posing with Spicer, who is a member of the Navy Reserve. "Dear @SeanSpicer - if I promise to look AT the camera this time, will you come to my show next week?" Kimmel wrote.

Spicer's future is an open question, but he seems intent on capitalizing on his high name recognition. Asked earlier this week about the opportunities before him, Spicer told The Hollywood Reporter, "I've been humbled by the amount of interest, and now that I've completely left government, I'll be looking to engage in those discussions."

There's a template for Spicer's appearance on late night. Short-lived White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci appeared on Stephen Colbert's show in mid-August and helped the show achieve a Monday ratings record.
