Michael J. Fox has joined the cast of “Designated Survivor.” He will be on for five-episodes when it returns Wednesday, February 28th.
Fox will play Ethan West, a bulldog of a lawyer who is hired by the White House to investigate allegations against former president Cornelius Moss that he leaked classified info. West is said to be a wily prosecutor who is only beholden to the law, like any good independent counsel should be. ABC says that makes him a potent adversary for Kirkman, signaling that Kirkman may find himself involved in Moss’s mess.
