Cabin in the Woods star Bradley Whitford is coming to Showtime!
Sorry, boys, it's not for one of those late night skin flicks!!
The Emmy-winning TV veteran signed on to play a politically active gay man who is also Emmy Rossum's boss on Shameless!
He's scheduled to appear in at least two episodes in a show that often puts a humorous spin on William H. Macy's character's debilitating alcoholism!
After his breakout role on Billy Madison, Bradley excelled as Josh "Lemon" Lyman on seven season of The West Wing.
We wonder whether any of that will prepare him for life with the Gallagher clan? LOLz!!

Martin Sheen, Allison Janney and other stars reunited to film the PSA in the form of a four-minute web video.
It's basically a mini-episode! You GOTTA watch it (above)!!
Only thing that would've made it better was John Spencer. Boy, do we miss Leo.
