President Obama to appear on Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee

Seinfeld explains to The Washington Post that President Obama has "done some really good work as a monologist at those correspondents dinners—that’s how he qualifies to be on the show.” The Post reports that “Seinfeld filmed the episode with Obama on the afternoon of Dec. 7, about 16 hours after the president delivered his primetime television address on terrorism. Seinfeld and Obama took turns driving a 1963 Corvette Stingray on the circular road on the South Lawn of the White House grounds, then chatted casually over coffee about the mundane aspects of a president’s life.” PLUS: Watch the Season 7 trailer featuring Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Garry Shandling, Kathleen Madigan and Sebastian Maniscalco
