On the heels of casting ER alum Maura Tierney, Broadway vet Kristin Chenoweth and British actor Marc Warren (as Kalinda’s ex) in recurring roles for its upcoming season, the acclaimed CBS drama has recruited two-time Tony Award winner/three-time Emmy nominee Nathan Lane to appear in multiple episodes.
UPDATE: Lane will play a bean-counter assigned by the bank to trim the fat at Lockhart & Gardner, which in the season finale lost one of its biggest clients, and get the firm back to fiscal health. As such, he will find himself at odds with Will, Diane and others at the firm.
Lane’s most recent TV gigs include the role of Pepper Saltzman on Modern Family and Jack Donaghy’s brother Eddie on 30 Rock.
The Good Wife‘s Season 4 launch, as with all CBS premiere dates, has yet to be announced, though the show will continue to air Sundays at 9/8c.
