If there’s anything The Good Wife taught us, it’s that Michael J. Fox plays one helluva lawyer.
He’s doing it again for Designated Survivor, playing a Washington attorney named Ethan West who is appointed as a special prosecutor to investigate former President Cornelius Moss’ alleged leak of classified information. Naturally, Tom Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland) is skeptical about the latest visitor to the White House.
In these exclusive clips obtained by EW, Sutherland meets Fox’s character for the first time. And here’s a fun fact for you cinephiles: The last time the two men were in the same project together was the movie Bright Lights, Big City in 1988.
Fox will appear for a total of five episodes beginning April 18.
Designated Survivor airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
