"I did on Scandal," he reminded fans, "which is why I won't be dancing here. I got enough crap on the internet that I think people are happy with my one dance moment, and don't need to see it again."
"There is a bit of the patriarchal role, the guy who A, needs to get things done, but B, wants to get them done while still taking care of the people that he's working with," Foley continued. "It's a fun role for me to play."
As a father of three, playing a patriarchal role isn't too far out of Foley's wheelhouse. The actor travels back and forth between his family home in Connecticut and The Big Leap's set in Chicago -- but may have his two worlds colliding pretty soon.
"I was dying for my daughter to play my actual daughter on the show," Foley shared. "They cast somebody else, it was a time issue. But I would love to have them here. My wife [actress Marika Dominczyk] is a huge fan of this show. I showed her the pilot and she was like, 'Well, you gotta get me on. I gotta have a part.' I mean, that's pressure from the wife right there."
