President Obama to Guest Star on ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

President Obama will guest star on Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Crackle announced Monday. He will be the first guest star of season seven, which premieres Dec. 30.

Along with Obama, Crackle also announced more guest stars for the new season, including Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Garry Shandling, Kathleen Madigan and Sebastian Maniscalco.

Obama’s appearance will mark the first non-comedian guest on the show — or at least, the first non-comedic actor — and he is the first political figure for “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”

Obama’s episode was shot at the White House earlier this month and features the president and Seinfeld driving a 1963 Corvette Stingray split window coupe, while talking about life in the White House over coffee.

“Growing up in the ’60s my kid dream was always to be an astronaut — doing a comedy show with President Obama in and around the White House felt like going into space,” Seinfeld said. “‘How did I get here?’ ‘Is this really happening?’ The president’s humor and generosity are the only reasons this was even possible. He was so easy and fun to be with. Being president and just a cool guy to hang out with at the same time made the experience my own personal moonwalk. It was an unforgettable day.”

Eric Berger, Crackle g.m. and exec VP of Sony Pictures Television Digital Networks, said, “Like everything else Jerry Seinfeld does, he has managed to break records with ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ — we’re so proud of this season that we just couldn’t wait until the New Year for people to see it.”

Season seven of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” will have six episodes total with new episodes streaming every Wednesday night at 11:30 p.m on Crackle.

Here’s the full episode:
