Now it looks like he is trying to get back onto television by lending his face and voice to the syndicated news magazine show Extra TV, which, according to Vanity Fair, is basically a tabloid with moving pictures and sound.
One of his first assignments in the role was to interview his former college and apparent Oscar fanatic, secretary of state Mike Pompeo.
In a video posted on ExtraTV's Twitter account on Wednesday, Spicer is seen interviewing Pompeo and his wife Susan about music, the movies and where they plan to watch the Oscars.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Spicer said that the aim of these interviews, which are all with members of the same administration, was to...
Obviously, we started in my wheelhouse of Republicans, but we hope to make this bipartisan and to offer people an opportunity and a platform to give people a better understanding of who they are as people.
This is the personal, not the politics, not the policy. The idea is to give people a different angle on some of the people they see on the cable news channels every day.
Spicer also told Mashable that the interviews are a one-off and that he thought it was a "cool idea".
