Scoop: The Good Wife Retains Former Friend Matthew Perry For Recurring Gig

The Good Wife Matthew PerryAlicia Florrick is about to make a new friend frenemy.

Matthew Perry is joining The Good Wife in the recurring role of Mike, an ultra-charming Chicago attorney tasked with heading up a blue ribbon panel that’s investigating a suspicious police shooting. His political steering of the committee seems inevitable until he’s sabotaged by a truth-seeking Alicia (Julianna Margulies).

Perry — last seen on the small screen in the short-lived ABC comedy Mr. Sunshine — makes his Good debut on March 25. Rumor has it the role may extend into next season.

Although the actor is (obviously) best known for his comedy work, let’s not forget his strong dramatic turns on The West Wing and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

Thoughts? Think Perry will be a Good addition?
