A member of the cast of CBS’s “Madam Secretary” begged its star, Téa Leoni, to get him into the scene with special guest stars Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright.
We’re told longtime cast member Erich Bergen got his script for the episode — and was disappointed to learn that he wasn’t in the scene with the famed former secretaries of state.
A spy overheard Bergen say — at an event at Tuscany Steakhouse for his other gig, “Waitress,” which he just took his final bow for — that he called Leoni and said he wanted to be in it, “even if he was serving water.”
We’re told the actress pulled strings and got Bergen written in.
Clinton, Powell and Albright shot the scene in July and will appear on the show’s fifth-season premiere in October.
