CBS’ The Good Wife has finally tapped an actor to play Kalinda’s scary-ass estranged husband, and it’s a surprising choice to say the least.
Rather than stunt-cast the plum part, Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King have awarded the recurring role to British actor Marc Warren.
Marc who, you ask?
The 45-year-old thesp is best known Stateside for his supporting gig as Master Sergeant Albert Blithe in HBO’s Band of Brothers. In the UK, he gained fame for his starring role in the drama series Hustle.
Warren’s additional credits include guest stints on Doctor Who and Highlander: The Series.
On The Good Wife, Warren will play Nick, Kalinda’s dangerous, master manipulator ex whom she ran away from pre-Lochkart Gardner, and whose return she was prepared for — lock, stock, and barrel — at the close of last month’s Season 3 finale.
Nick and Kalinda are poised to reunite early into the show’s fourth season.Follow @MichaelAusiello
