In the Scorpion episode “Sci Hard,” Walter (Elyes Gabel) brings Paige (Katharine McPhee) to a tech convention. There, Walter proudly introduces Paige as his girlfriend with whom he “has been intimate.” Paige is surprised that Walter would share that detail but not as surprised when she learns that Walter once poisoned some of the convention attendees including Vadat (Amir Talai) with E Coli to make a scientific point. After that awkward exchange, Team Scorpion is taken hostage by a group attempting a virtual heist at the convention. Also at the convention is billionaire CEO Richard Elia. Last time we saw Elia was in the 2016 episode where Walter was accidentally launched into space.
Elia is portrayed by Andy Buckley. He’s known for his roles on Odd Mom Out (Andy Weber), Casual (Paul Schmidt), Hit the Floor (Adam Oberman), The Office (David Wallace), The Lying Game (Ted Mercer), and in the TV mini-series A Woman Named Jackie (JFK, Jr.), among others. Buckley is also recognized fro his roles in the films Jurassic World (Scott), Bridesmaids (Helen/Rose Byrne’s husband), The Other Guys (Don Beaman), and The Heat (Robin). Scorpion airs Mondays at 10pm on CBS.
