roger bart getty small 'Revenge' casts Roger Bart as the latest thorn in Emily's sideIt’s Wednesday, folks! You know what that means — Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) will be wreaking havoc on “Revenge” tonight at 10 pm EST. You’ll want to be on your couch ready to watch — don’t make her take out her red Sharpie.

In the meantime, we’ve got a little bit of casting news for you courtesy of EW. Roger Bart, who fans know and love “Desperate Housewives” and “The Event” will be coming to the Hamptons in episode 12.

He plays Mason Treadwell, a wealthy writer who comes to town seeking a story. Consider Treadwell to be an academic, literary version of Gossip Girl. He wants the dish on the rich and scandalous for a tell-all book that he’s writing about Long Island’s upper crust. Expect him to be seriously pretentious — he decorates his house with mementos from the celebs he interviews. Seriously.

Though it sounds like he’s only in one episode, we’re guessing his appearance will have some lasting impact, as he’s being billed as a “guest lead.” Whatever that is.
