The season 2 premiere of Madam Secretary will feature a special guest both in front of and behind the lens: Morgan Freeman.

The Oscar winner will be guest-starring as the Supreme Court Chief Justice, as well as directing the episode. In this video, Freeman and stars Tea Leoni and Tim Daly give a behind-the-scenes look at Freeman’s TV directorial debut.

“I worked with Morgan years ago,” Leoni said. “He was still God back then, and it was just only slightly less intimidating.”

Watch above to see Freeman in action and get a sneak peek of the episode. 

Season 2 of Madam Secretary premieres Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
