The Best-Cast Show on Network Television Adds Four More Brilliant Faces in Recurring Roles
In addition to those two, "The Good Wife" has marvelously worked in Matthew Perry (as a slimy motherfucker), Gary Cole (as a charming tea-party, gun-rights advocate), Amy Sedaris (as an adversary to Alan Cumming's character), Martha Plimpton (as a bad-ass corporate attorney) Mamie Gummer (who feigns dumb blonde before kicking ass with her intelligence), Parker Posey (as Eli Gold's ex-wife), and a bevy or others, including Michael Ealy, Lisa Edelstein, F. Murray Abraham, Anika Noni Rose, America Ferrera, Scott Porter, and Dylan Baker (as a perverted murderer who is hard not to love), among others.
They've added four more already for next season in recurring roles, and they nicely fit into "The Good Wife's" history of recruiting great actors. They are:
Maura Tierney, who will play a "self-made billionaire who started her own Internet company and is the doyenne of Chicago Democratic politics."
Nathan Lane, who will appear in multiple episodes in an unspecified role.
Marc Warren, who will play Kalinda's menacing estranged ex.
Kristen Chenowith, who will recur as a political reporting trying to get to dig up all the details on the Florrick marriage.
