I don’t watch “The Good Wife” but constantly hear good things about it. Perhaps, I’ll pick it up during the rerun filled summer months and catch up before the fourth season of the CBS drama premieres. When it does return, the show will have a trio of new characters to introduce.
First on board is Maura Tierney. Her addition will mark a mini “ER” reunion. Both Julianna Margulies and Tierney appeared on the hit NBC medical drama together, albeit for one season. Maura will play “”a self-made millionaire who has become the doyenne of Chicago Democratic politics.” Sounds juicy.
Second on the newbie list is British actor Marc Warren. The 45-year-old actor will portray the manipulative ex-husband of Kalinda (played by Archie Panjabi), for whom she still harbors an irresistible attraction. Sounds even juicier. Warren’s previous credits include “Mad Dogs”, “The Vice” and “Hustle”.
Last and most certainly not least, my favorite pint-sized Broadway actress is also joining the cast. Kristin Chenoweth who last appeared in ABC’s ill-fated “GCB” will be on the show in a recurring capacity. She’ll play a snappy political reporter who wants to dig into the Florrick gubernatorial campaign. I can already picture her now in some amusing predicaments.
Do you watch “The Good Wife“? Thoughts on the three new additions to the cast? Sound off below.
