Freeman, also an executive producer on the show, will be playing a Supreme Court Justice in the episode that he also directed. He'll appear in a scene with Elizabeth (Téa Leoni)...though that's all we know so far. Details are being kept tight under wraps. Might he be teaching Secretary of State McCord a lesson? Or will he be a friendly face?
