Michael J. Fox is joining ABC’s “Designated Survivor” for a five-episode arc. Designated Survivor returns from its winter hiatus on Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 10/9c, but TV Guide has confirmed that Fox’s arc will begin later in this season. 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.
