During the 1st Season of the hit show The West Wing Edward made a two episode guest appearance as Justice Roberto Mendoza. In the first episode Mendoza is nominated as Supreme Court justice after a justice retires, however he only appears in the very end of the episode to accept the position. Edward asked to be cast in the role which originally was only meant to be a one episode appearance upon learning a Hispanic character was to be made a Supreme Court Justice. However, he would make a 2nd appearance in episode 15 entitled Celestial Navigation when his character is accused of drunk driving & resisting arrest which results in him sitting in jail.
