Rod Blagojevich has sat across from David Letterman before.
Months after his arrest, Blagojevich told the late-night host he'd always wanted to be on his show "in the worst way."
"You are on in the worst way," Letterman said.
Looks like that will happen again.
Blagojevich's PR folks said today that the ousted governor of Illinois will read Letterman's "Top Ten" list. Usually the "Top Ten" reading is an honor set-aside for recent medal winners and rising stars.
On Sunday, Blagojevich is set for a premiere on Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice."
Meanwhile, his criminal case continues to loom.
The former governor faces 24 counts, from racketeering to false statement charges. His trial right now is scheduled for June.
From his PR crew:
(PRNewsChannel) / March 09, 2010 / Chicago, Ill. / Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will read David Letterman's 'Top Ten' tomorrow on CBS' "Late Show."
"Rod Blagojevich is thrilled to have been asked to do the 'Top Ten' on Letterman," says Glenn Selig, Blagojevich's spokesman and founder of The Publicity Agency (http://www.thepublicityagency.com). "He had a blast the last time he was on the show and has a great deal of respect for David Letterman. He looks forward to being on the show again."
Barbara Walters, Olympic gold medal skater Evan Lysacek and Britney Spears have each recently been selected to read the 'Top Ten' on Letterman.
"That's quite a group to be a part of," says Selig. "He's honored and excited."
This Sunday, the former Illinois governor competes on NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" to raise money for his favorite charity, the Children's Cancer Center in Tampa as he appears on the Donald Trump reality show.
