Television journeyman Steven Weber‘s next stop will be in Dallas, with a recurring role on the TNT drama.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Weber will play Governor McConaughey, an ambitious politico who conspires with Cliff Barnes and Harris Ryland — a gruesome twosome if ever there was — to take down the Ewing family.
Weber will first air in Season 2′s 12th episode.
In addition to his runs on, of course, Wings, Brothers & Sisters and Studio 60, Weber’s more recent TV credits include visits to Malibu Country, 2 Broke Girls (where he plays Caroline’s father), Parenthood and TNT’s Falling Skies.
Dallas airs Mondays at 9/8c, with Season 2, Episode 6 coming up this week.
