Haysbert will appear in episode 9 as Russ Bradley Morrison, who will be chaperoning a school field trip to the museum with Kate (Malin Akerman). He is described by TVLine as “straight-laced,” not entirely surprising for a man with three names.
Russ will also find himself involved in one of Kate’s matchmaking endeavors.
In addition to playing President David Palmer on 24, Haysbert’s credits include The Unit, and the role of everyone’s favorite insurance pitchman for Allstate. Haysbert also appeared in a Rainn Wilson-fronted pilot Backstrom for CBS, which failed to make the 2013-2014 cut.
Trophy Wife airs Tuesdays at 9:30 PM ET on ABC.
