Anthony Weiner gets 'Alpha House' cameo

(CNN) - Anthony Weiner is stepping back into the political scene–well, at least the fictional political scene.

The former Congressman will make an appearance in the season finale Friday of the Amazon original series "Alpha House," a spokesman for the show confirmed Wednesday.

Also set to appear in the finale is CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin and former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele.

The comedy, which debuted last year, is about four Republican Senators who live together as roommates in Washington. The show stars John Goodman, Mark Consuelos, Clark Johnson, and Matt Malloy.

CNN Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash got a close look last year at the original "Alpha House," a home on Capitol Hill known as "The Omega House" and shared by Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois; Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York; and Rep. George Miller, D-California.

Weiner, a Democrat from New York, resigned from Congress in June 2011 after lying about sending lewd photos and messages to multiple women.

He attempted to make a political comeback last year in the New York City mayoral race. But after another woman came forward to prove Weiner kept sexting after he left Congress, his campaign quickly fell flat and Weiner finished far behind the other candidates in the Democratic primary.

    Glad to hear that he's earning an income. He'd be better off to volunteer somewhere charitable. Perform some public service duties, which would show his remorse. Unfortunately, this acting gig may show that it's still all about Anthony in the spotlight. Lessons have not been learned.

    Weiner's buddies in Hollywood giving him a little help. I hope this doesn't mean that NY will get more annoying film crews on the street, which block traffic and sometimes create a noise/light nuisance.
