Casting Updates: Good Wife Welcomes Homeland Hottie, Happy Endings Snags Hanks and More!

Two familiar faces from Showtime’s fall drama lineup have landed hot new winter gigs.

First up, Homeland stunner Morena Baccarin will drop by The Good Wife this March, playing a high-powered event planner who accuses returning creepster Colin Sweeney (Dylan Baker) of sexual harassment.

Meanwhile, Dexter alum Colin Hanks is set to ditch the gloom and doom(sday killings) for a guest appearance (as himself!) on Happy Endings. The story finds a fictionalized Hanks befriending Dave when the Steak Me Home Tonight truck becomes a Chicago hotspot.

Both casting scoops were first reported by EW.com.
