Photo Flash: First Look - Roger Bart Guest Stars on ABC's REVENGE, 1/11
Broadway veteran Roger Bart will guest star on the January 11th episode of ABC's REVENGE. In the episode entitled 'Infamy', Bart will play the role of Mason Treadwell, a rich, pretentious journalist who's written a tell-all book about Long Island high society. Treadwell returns to the town where he has deep ties with both the Graysons and the Clarkes. Also on the episode, Conrad proves how dirty he's willing to get when Daniel gets dragged into the divorce; Jack finally let's his guard down with Amanda; and a stunning revelation is unveiled and becomes a game changer for Emily and the Graysons. The episode airs at 10:00 pm/ET on the ABC network.
REVENGE tells the story of Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp)who is the newest arrival in the Hamptons this summer. By all appearances, she's a friendly and sophisticated "girl next door," whose disarming charm and generosity allow her seamless access to the restricted circles of Hamptons high society. But the affluent, exclusive world she's immersed herself in is tied to a dark family history, and Emily Thorne is anything but what she seems. When Emily was just nine, her father was framed for a horrific crime by neighbors he trusted, and was sentenced to life in prison. Emily never saw her father again and spent her childhood consumed by rage, loss and betrayal. 17 years later, she has returned under an assumed identity with one endgame - REVENGE -- every social overture a carefully planned chip at the foundation of her sworn enemies, until their lives come crashing down around them. Emily's goal is unwavering, and her sharp mind is always five steps ahead. But when her past begins to catch up, her true heart may get caught in the crossfire.
