Anthony Anderson revealed that he’s working on snagging US president, Barack Obama and first lady for a guest appearance on his hit ABC sitcom, Black-ish.
“We’re petitioning to get President Obama on the show,” Anderson told E! News at the Emmys.
“They watch the show,” Anderson said. “They love it. We know them so we’ve been dealing with them and their people and hopefully they’ll say yes.”
The veteran actor certainly isn’t taking his success for granted.
“Who would have thought I would be like, ‘You know, we’re talking to POTUS about being on our show,’ while I’m on the red carpet at the Emmys because I’m nominated for that show?” he said.
Season two of Black-ish premieres Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
Meanwhile, it is reported that Barack Obama also follows Game of Thrones, Homeland and House of Cards and the recently ended Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire.
