Former President George W. Bush — who has largely shunned media appearances in favor of a bit of post-presidency privacy — is poised to appear as a guest next week on “The Tonight Show.”

The ex-commander-in-chief will sit down with host Jay Leno on Nov. 19.


The last time Bush was a guest on the NBC show was back in 2010 during a book tour.

Bush spokesman Freddy Ford told the cable network the 43rd president wanted to swing by the “Tonight Show” set before Leno gives up the host chair next year, saying, “President Bush is going to be in the area next week so he was happy to accept Jay Leno’s invitation to drop by the show one last time.”

Leno has been getting a lot of love these days from current and former White House residents. President Obama sat on his late-night couch back in August — his sixth time. Michelle Obama also stopped by in 2012.
