Good Wife Scoop: Kristin Chenoweth to Join Season 4 as a Hard-Hitting [Spoiler]

The Good Wife Season 4 CastHere’s something to sing about: The golden-voiced Kristen Chenoweth will be part of The Good Wife’s upcoming Season 4.

The actress/singer will recur as a sharp political reporter who won’t stop until she’s got all of the details about the Florrick campaign… and marriage. Chenoweth’s petite journo will first appear in the fall premiere and will tangle with Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Peter (Chris Noth) throughout the season.

Chenoweth played Carlene on the ABC comedy GCB before it was cancelled in May. Prior to that, she appeared on Glee, Pushing Daisies and The West Wing, among others. To fans of the Great White Way, she’s perhaps best known for originating the role of Glinda in Wicked.

She joins previously announced guest star Maura Tierney, who’ll play a self-made Chicago billionaire.

    TGW’s fourth season seems to be epic!

    In West Wing she was also a political operative. She’s the one who found the VP nom’s body.

  11. Babygate says:

    I agree that this fourth season has the making of an epic season. Soooo looking forward to it. I won’t be watching live because TGW is going against Revenge but I will be following online. Love Kristen. I hope we get to see a lot of her on TGW.

  12. YESSSS!!! I hate that this show is on Sundays but absolutely LOVE IT!!

  13. Joe says:

    I don’t watch this show since political dramas bore me but if Cheno is on it, I may have to give it a shot.

  14. Amanda says:

    Yay yay yay yay yay yay!!! Awesome news.

  15. Yay! I’m very excited! Her character sounds interesting, I like that The Good Wife tries to make the politics as real as possible (reporter, a wealthy supporter.) TGW is definitely writing at it’s best and Kristen Chenoweth should fit right in!

  16. Flawless! It’s so nice to see no negative comments here too! Everyone loves Cheno!

    THIS is why I love the The Good Wife. The show always has the best casting.

  20. Dan says:

    Wait, wasn’t she already in TGW? I mean, who is that blonde girl that had sex with Eli Gold?

  21. Saint Alicia says:

    Ugh, do they really need more new characters (recurring to boot)? Please focus on and explore the ones you already have.

  22. mia says:

    Awesome!!! While I’m still holding out for a GCB renewal, this is great news!!

  23. Mandy says:

    GCB was cancelled? Bummer

  24. darcywilson says:

    I wish Parker Posey would return. I wish Eli had of picked her over Peter, but this show is about the Florricks, so nevermind.

  25. albtrex says:

    I LOVE HER!!!!! So glad she will be in this amazing show!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!

  26. Ethan says:

    Hmmm..I don’t know about this. I hope Kristin takes it down a bit cuz she can get too hammy.

  27. Casey says:

    This is probably good casting but I haven’t watched Good Wife since they decided Alicia would be with Peter not Will. I can’t handle the whole I’m a strong independent lawyer and a pathetic, please cheat on me doormat of a wife dynamic!

  28. Lucy says:

    EPIC CASTING IS EPIC! LOVE ALL THE TGW’S NEWS! THIS SEASON IS GOING TO BE AMAZING!
