“They're all casual,” Spicer says of the interviews. “The idea is just to literally, each one of them I go for a walk with them, talk about what do they like to do in their spare time.”

He expresses hope that it’ll turn into a bipartisan affair: “As politics merges into pop culture, it's to help bridge that divide.”

Pompeo dishes on his love for the band Queen in the inaugural segment with Spicer.

“He adores Queen, so I mean we saw ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ first weekend,” Pompeo’s wife, Susan, said of her husband when asked what tunes he listens to while traveling.

When Spicer inquired whether he has a favorite Oscars “Best Picture” contender, Pompeo replied, “Gosh, I love ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.' ”

The movie about the British rock band and its frontman, Freddie Mercury, is one of eight films nominated in the “Best Picture” category.

Spicer, 47, made headlines at a different Hollywood awards show in 2017, when he made a surprise cameo appearance at the Emmys at the end of host Stephen Colbert’s monologue.

Although he talks Academy Awards with Pompeo, Spicer tells ITK that he has no plans to attend the Oscars on Sunday, or cover it for “Extra.”

His aim with his interviews for the Hollywood-centric show, Spicer says, is to “get to know some of these important people on a more personal level.”
