TV Tidbits: ‘Revenge’ Finds a New Baddie, George Washington Moves to TV

ALTThe Modern Family Makes Some Friends: Since Star Wars news has been all the rage lately, most of you have probably been wondering, “But what about Billy Dee Williams?” Well, that question is about to be answered: Williams will guest star on an upcoming episode of Modern Family, playing himself. In another episode, Nathan Lane will return as Pepper, the flamboyant friend of Mitch and Cam. [EW]

Dylan Walsh Gets His Revenge: Watch out, Conrad Grayson! There’s another wealthy hedge fund manager in town, and he comes in the form of former Nip/Tuck star Dylan Walsh. Walsh has booked a multi-episode arc in the series, as the stylish Jason Prosser. [EW]

Good Wife Nabs Another Good Guest: Paging Agent Cooper! Twin Peaks (and Sex and the City, and Desperate Housewives, and, um, Made in Jersey) alum Kyle MacLachlan has booked a multi-episode arc on CBS’ hit drama The Good Wife, playing a character who will intersect with Alan Cumming‘s Eli Gold. [EW]

NBC Gets Presidential

: He saves children, but not the British children! (Points for you if you get that joke.) Anyway, NBC has put in development George Washington, a drama series from Oscar-winning writer David Seidler (The King’s Speech), Barry Levinson, and Tom Fontana, about Abraham Lincoln. JK! It’s about George Washington. [Deadline]
