Justin Long is heading to “The Michael J. Fox Show,” Access Hollywood can exclusively reveal.
The actor will make a guest appearance on the NBC comedy’s Season 1 finale.
Justin will play a smooth-talking, unsentimental news consultant brought in to raise ratings at NBC4, the New York news station where Michael’s character, Mike Henry, works with Harris Wright (Wendell Pierce).
The episode is set to air in 2014, but Justin won’t be the only famous face in the mix.
Access has learned that Kathie Lee Gifford will make a cameo as herself.
Kathie Lee will also appear in the episode in a scene with Susan Rodriguez-Jones, Mike’s colleague and nemesis, played by Anne Heche.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Michael was nominated for a Golden Globe in the comedy actor category.
“The Michael J. Fox Show” is produced by Sony Pictures Television. New episodes return to NBC on January 2 at 9:30/8:30c.
