Kerry Washington, Wendell Pierce, Other “Confirmation” Cast Appearing on TODAY

Update: NBC recently made some revisions to its TODAY Show schedule, and those affect planned appearances from “Confirmation” cast members. Here is an updated list of when to expect Kerry Washington, Wendell Pierce, and others on the show:

4/5, 9-10AM window: Greg Kinnear
4/7, 9-10AM window: Wendell Pierce
4/8, 7-9AM window: Kerry Washington
4/12, 9-10AM window: Washington, Pierce, Kinnear

The April 16 premiere of HBO’s “Confirmation” movie is quickly approaching, and that means dates for upcoming promotional appearances are falling into place.

NBC’s TODAY Show will play host to several of those appearances.

Per official network listings, Eric Stonestreet will appear in support of the TV movie on March 31. Stonestreet plays Kenneth Duberstein in “Confirmation.” NBC says his interview will air during the 9-10AM hour of the show.

Wendell Pierce, who stars as Clarence Thomas, will then visit TODAY on April 7. His segment is scheduled for the 9-10AM portion.

The April 8 episode will feature two “Confirmation”-related segments.

Kerry Washington, who toplines as Anita Hill, is booked for an interview during the 7-9AM portion. She will then join Pierce and Greg Kinnear (Joe Biden) for a group segment in the 9AM hour.
