Miles (Brandon Micheal Hall) may be one step closer to finding out who’s behind the God Account — and guest star Judd Hirsch may be able to help.

The beloved Taxi star appears on God Friended Me in the January 5 episode, “A New Hope,” as Abe, a Holocaust survivor looking for information on his sister’s fate. Joy (Jessica Lu) is once again helping with the friend suggestions, as she notices that they’re all clients — including Abe — of the same insurance company.

Oh my gosh, he was fabulous. That’s a really, really sweet episode.”
