A veteran film and TV actor who’s best known for his role on Ally McBeal will guest star on CBS’ new drama Vegas this fall.

Gil Bellows will play mayoral candidate George Grady in the drama that premieres Sept. 25 and stars Dennis Quaid as a reluctant sheriff and Michael Chiklis as a mobster. Grady is campaigning for mayor against incumbent Ted Bennett (Michael O’Neill), and he’s intrigued with and inspired by Vincent Savino (Chiklis).

Grady is open coaching prior to his first debate with Bennett, courtesy of Savino’s wife (Vinessa Shaw).

Bellows, who has most recently starred on shows like Sanctuary and Criminal Minds, will appear in at least two episodes.
