White House insider David Axelrod usually works behind the scenes. But later this week he's taking center stage — with Jay Leno.
"The Tonight Show" says President Barack Obama's senior adviser will come to Leno's couch on Friday.
It's the first time Axelrod will appear on late-night TV.
Axelrod will be doing an encore for the Obama administration. The president was interviewed by Leno last year.
