It seems only fitting that the wife of Scandal‘s maniacal, Machiavellian Hollis Doyle counts Mad Men among her most memorable credits.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Melinda McGraw, who played Don Draper’s Season 2 mistress Bobbie Barrett on the AMC drama, is joining Scandal as the wife of Gregg Henry’s ruthless oil tycoon.
As previously scooped by TVLine, her character, Deborah, is described as a smart and ambitious New York native. She’s slated to debut in April.
McGraw’s TV-packed resume also includes stints on The X-Files (as Scully’s sister), Men of a Certain Age (as Scott Bakula’s love interest), and NCIS (as one of Gibbs’ ex-wives).
Scandal returns with fresh episodes on March 21.
