Good Wife Exclusive: Martha Plimpton Set for Season Finale (and She Won't Be Alone)

Martha Plimpton The Good WifeLooks like The Good Wife‘s Alicia Florrick is going to have to prove she’s worth that salary hike she just scored.

TVLine has learned exclusively that a pair of wily Lockhart Gardner nemeses — Patti Nyholm (Martha Plimpton) and Louis Canning (Michael J. Fox) — are teaming up to take on the firm in a case that will be central to the show’s Season 3 finale.

What’s more, Plimpton’s character will be accompanied by her yet-to-be-cast manny, 25-year-old Michael, who’s being described as “a stunning, model-handsome African man” who keeps his eye on Patti’s kids in the office during working hours, and “has some ongoing concerns about diaper rash.”

Excited about a Patti-Louis power pairing? Any thoughts on who should portray the caregiver to Patti’s kids? Hit the comments!

  1. I love it when Martha and Juliana interact. It brings me back the good old ER days (Where Martha played a pregnant junkie Juliana tried to help get clean- and ended up geting her arrested to do so!)

  2. Kendal says:

    This excites me GREATLY!

  3. Rock Golf says:

    Seriously, has any other show in TV history ever had a better guest cast than Good Wife? You could fill the Best Guest Actors & Actresses Emmy categories with any 5 random episodes.

  4. Ashton says:

    I was wondering when Martha would be making another appearance.

  5. EveatEden says:

    Oh, this is going to be ROUGH! They are both such GREAT characters!

  6. Lucy says:

    Welcome back Martha. But still waiting for a spoiler about Cary that could save me from the disperation that season inflicted me about that character’s storyline and screentime.

    The manny has got to be the Old Spice guy, right?

    • smidnite says:

      That would be TOO perfect.

    • Diane says:

      I thought of Mr. Old Spice immediately!

    • Tania says:

      The description was that of a 25 year old for the part of the manny. Mr. Old Spice is far from that age don’t you think?

      i thought the same exact thing…so funny. The one thing I hate about The Good Wife this season is the Sunday time slot. The show never airs on time so it makes it impossible. I end up DVRing the entire CBS Lineup in hopes that somewhere in there I get the entire Good Wife episode. But for people watching live, it makes it hard for viewers to find the show – especially if they’re also watching other shows on other networks Sunday night. Id like to suggest that the Kings consider spinning Kalinda off onto her own show. I just think she’s a great actress and a character that could have so many other things to explore and could be t he center of a show revolving about her and her investigative skills and the interesting people from her past and present

    • Cathy says:

      That’s exactly what I was thinking!

  8. Sam says:

    Mehcad Brooks as the manny, obviously.

  9. tp says:

    Mehcad Brooks would be excellent! I can’t wait for Necessary Roughness to come back!

  10. tp says:

    And what’s up with the Gravatar, Facebook, Twitter log in? Had to use a different email just so my pic wouldn’t show up.

  11. Diva says:

    They should just hire Michael J Fox. I think he loves playing his character because he doesn’t have to hide his movements. Love me some Martha can’t wait to watch her on Raising Hope tonight.

  12. Ainav says:

    Yes. This please!

  13. Che says:

    It is quite exciting. Maybe Idris Elba could be the guy.

  14. Monica says:

    Can we have also Elsbeth Tascioni in the finale? Then, it would just be TV nirvana.

  15. pandora says:

    Is Parenthood’s Michael B. Jordan too young to play the manny?

  16. Saint Alicia says:

    Great news; love to hate Patty Nyholm!

  17. Tharcyla says:

    I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT IT TODAY… “OMG, Martha should make another appearance in TGW!” Welcome back, Martha, welcome back!

  18. A says:

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! She is like one of the best guest stars on this show. Love Martha Plimpton. Been waiting for her to return. So excited!!

  19. Lina says:

    As much as I love Raising Hope… if there were ever thoughts for a Good Wife spin-off, I suggest they make the Michael J. Fox and Martha Plimpton pairing permanent.

  20. Ella says:

    Damon Wayans Jr should play the manny! He is amazing.

  21. Safia says:

    Oh yes…Mehcad Brooks definitely

  22. Hilla says:

    Such great news!! I’v been hoping to get this news! Martha is amazing!!!

  23. Clothilde says:
