Five-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close will guest-star on NBC's The West Wing later this month playing a potential Supreme Court justice. "A conservative judge just died, so it's the business of trying to get her nominated and the confirmation drama around it," costar John Spencer explains to TV Guide Online. "The Senate we're dealing with is a Republican majority, as it is in the real world."

Politics can make for big guest stars on NBC's The West Wing. Glenn Close will make a rare TV appearance March 24 (9 p.m. ET/PT), playing a socially conscious judge being considered by President Bartlet (Martin Sheen) for a vacancy on the Supreme Court. Her liberal politics create controversy, however, because she would be filling the seat held by one of the most conservative justices in the nation's history.

In the storyline, she portrays Judge Evelyn Baker Lang, one of the most controversial and socially conscious judges serving in the federal court. After a current U.S. Supreme Court justice dies suddenly, President Bartlet (Martin Sheen) must fill the position and is directed to consider the savvy Lang. However, her liberal politics appear to make her a long shot to fill the seat now left vacant by the death of one of the most conservative justices in American history.

He showed a great deal of candor and passion for the show during his talk, and had a good feel for (and devotion to) the show's history; the writing staff is always on guard against repeating themselves (e.g. they wouldn't have done another Supreme Court arc this season without bringing new angles to the table)
