He Did It: Leno Books Scott Brown

Scott BrownUntil last week, Scott Brown was a little known state senator who drove an old pick up truck; this Thursday, he's going to be on 'The Jay Leno Show' via satellite for the Q&A segment '10@10,' according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The Republican Brown won the U.S. Senate seat held by Senator Edward Kennedy for over 50 years, beating Attorney General Martha Coakley (D) in an upset last Tuesday.

But, while he may have been relatively unknown in the world of politics, Brown -- and his family -- have had a fair amount of media exposure. Brown won Cosmopolitan Magazine's 'America's Sexiest Man' Contest and posed nearly nude for the magazine in 1982. His daughter, Ayla, was a semi-finalist on season 5 of 'American Idol,' and his wife, Gail, appeared, bikini-clad, in a 1984 music video for song by Digney Fingus called 'The Girl With The Curious Hand.'Scott BrownUntil last week, Scott Brown was a little known state senator who drove an old pick up truck; this Thursday, he's going to be on 'The Jay Leno Show' via satellite for the Q&A segment '10@10,' according to the Hollywood Reporter.

However, this will be Brown's first appearance on an unscripted variety show and there's no telling what Leno might ask or how things could go. In the first-ever '10@10' segment, Leno asked Tom Cruise about his strip club visiting habits, and Cruise also revealed that sex with him is "like flying." On a '10@10' last week, Jimmy Kimmel turned the tables on Leno and basically found any way he could to take jabs at Leno over the whole Jay vs. Conan vs. NBC debacle.

Leno has also interviewed politicians including First Lady Michelle Obama, Senator John McCain, and House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank during the segment, with whom Leno had a spirited exchange:

Leno: Here's a tricky one, question number four--If you had to have dinner with one of the following political conservatives, which one would you choose: Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter?

Frank: I guess of the three I would take Rush Limbaugh because it would be very painful, and he would come with the painkillers, which he always has.

For Brown, Leno will likely stick to questions about the Senator-elect's political future, but would remiss if he didn't ask the question that's been on many young men's minds since Brown's acceptance speech last Tuesday: Are his daughters still single? Brown raised the question himself when he introduced his daughters, Ayla and Arianna, and added: "Just in case anyone who's watching throughout the country, yes they're both available."

If anything, Brown's appearance could help Leno's show go out with a bang. Unlike 'The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien,' the NBC controversy failed to boost 'The Jay Leno Show''s ratings. The show will officially go off the air on Feb. 9 as Leno preps his return to 'The Tonight Show' on Mar. 1.
