Chicago � U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, the top lawyer for the Northern District of Illinois and the special prosecutor in the Lewis “Scooter” Libby trial, will soften his serious demeanor and become a bit more playful as a contestant this week on National Public Radio’s ‘Wait Wait-Don’t Tell Me’ quiz show. Fitzgerald agreed to participate in the “Not My Job” segment, in which a celebrity is quizzed on something about which he or she presumably knows very little. Former contestants include Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, who was asked about the habits of rock stars, and General Motors Corp. Chief Executive Bob Lutz, who was questioned about famous people with agoraphobia. The show, which is based in Chicago, will include Fitzgerald in a special taping this week in the city’s Millennium Park. The show will air the weekend of July 21-22. “Several times recently I thought about getting tickets to go watch it, but never got it done,” Fitzgerald said in a release this week by NPR. “Now, I know I have a seat.” Fitzgerald will be grilled like any other guest on the show and victory will depend on his efforts, said Peter Sagal, host of the program. “Of course, if he does lose, we expect the president to intervene and change the result,” Sagal said.
