Exclusive: The Good Wife Casts Will's Other Sis!

The Good Wife has completed casting of Will’s forthcoming sister ack!, tapping The Big C‘s Nadia Dajani to play the older of his meddling female siblings.

CBS Boss Talks Good Wife‘s Tricky Timeslot, Talk Show Upheaval, Person of Interest Changes and More!

Dajani — whose tube credits also include Ned and Stacey and, more recently, Necessary Roughness — will portray Sara, Will’s 40-year-old Type A, bossypants sis who shows up on his doorstep with younger sib Audra (Nurse Jackie‘s Merritt Wever) determined to fix his life (i.e. find him a nice girl).

“Like every single man with sisters they are obsessed with finding him a wife,” says exec producer Michelle King with a laugh.

Dajani’s role, like Wever’s, is recurring.

  • Hi Ausiello! I believe it’s Merritt WEVER, not Weaver. Weird, I know.

  • This looks like another great casting decision on the part of The Good Wife. While I’m keeping my fingers crossed that things will turn around for Team Gardner eventually, it stands to reason Will’s sisters are hoping he finds a nice, eligible woman to steal his heart away. If Alicia and Will can’t be together for now, Will needs a love interest – I can’t wait to see what his sisters will be cooking up!

  • Agree with those who say Will already has a girl. He’s always loved Alicia and always will. Last week implied that she is his vulnerability because he loves her. I hope they get back together soon!

  • I agree with other commentors here. Will HAS a girl (i.e. Alicia) and he really needs to get back with her. I want more Will / Alicia drama, not LESS.

    • This is so cool! Hope that we later get to see these two gal pals on the show together working to help Will against Peter’s investigation. Love Nadja. Love Lisa E. Love the Good Wife!

  • Great casting for The Good Wife! Nadia is funny and smart and will be a perfect “bossy big sister” Geeze everyone, it’s not like the spoiler said Will GETS a new girlfriend, just that his sisters want to find one for him. Nadia will be great in this recurring role! :-)
