Bradley Whitford has signed on to guest star on the third season of Shameless.
The West Wing alum will appear in two episodes of the upcoming season playing Abraham — a “powerful, well-dressed, sophisticated gay man who is a political activist.” Let’s hope he takes his cues from White House Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman and not his shady Cabin in the Woods character.
In addition to starring in The West Wing and The Cabin in the Woods, Whitford has also appeared in The Good Guys, The X Files and ER.
Shameless stars William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum and Justin Chatwin. The Showtime series will return for season 3 on January 13, 2013 at 9 p.m.
