Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) will be getting a brother according to Entertainment Weekly in the form of Eric Stoltz. The report which was released earlier this week says that the actor will most likely have his first appearance in a November episode.
Stolz’ casting comes just weeks after Entertainment Weekly revealed that actor and executive producer Morgan Freeman would be joining the show as a Supreme Court Justice in the Madam Secretary Season 2 premiere on October 4th.
Elizabeth’s brother Peter has a conflictual relationship with his sister. And he’ll be looking to settle old scores when he shows up in a November episode. The storyline is yet another example of how Madam Secretary likes to balance the political and the personal which makes the series all that much more compelling.
