Throughout the years, we've experienced many different forms of Bradley Whitford. From the scheming Eric Gordon in 'Billy Madison' to the lovable Josh Lyman on 'The West Wing,' all the way up to the present day family man Pete Harrison on 'Trophy Wife,' it's safe to say this guy's got a pretty impressive acting range.
However, fans are about to see a side of him they've never seen before in an upcoming episode of 'Law & Order: SVU.' And spoiler alert: it could most definitely end up giving you nightmares.
The actor will guest star in the series' May 7 episode as Frank Maddox — a renowned TV producer who's been accused of molesting his 8-year-old daughter. This shocking news comes to the surface right in the middle of a nasty custody battle with his estranged wife Catherine Summers, played by previously reported Samantha Mathis ('Under the Dome').
As for whether the accusation is actually valid or simply a horrific ploy Catherine uses to help win in court, remains to be seen. Let's just hope, for the sake of our sleep regimens, it ends up being the latter.
But these two won't be the only guest stars gracing this particular episode, appropriately titled "Reasonable Doubt." Additional cameos include Jeffrey Tambor ('Arrested Development') and Emma Bell ('Dallas'), as well as Geraldo Rivera and Ann Curry, who will both be playing themselves.
'Law & Order: SVU' airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on NBC.
