Exclusive: Good Wife Tees Up Sopranos Face-Off, Casts Annabella Sciorra as Alicia's [Spoiler]

Annabella Sciorra The Good WifeIt’s Tony Soprano’s worst nightmare come true: Two of his mistresses are about to come face-to-face.

Annabella Sciorra has signed on to guest star on The Good Wife opposite fellow Sopranos alum Julianne Margulies, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Sciorra will play a tough, smart gangland lawyer who’s a doppelganger of Margulies’ Alicia.

The two actresses never actually crossed paths on The Sopranos. By the time Margulies’ mob moll, also named Julianna, entered Tony’s life in Season 6, Sciorra’s Gloria Trillo was a distant memory (the unhinged car salesman hanged herself shortly after Tony ended their affair.)

Sciorra will likely encounter another familiar face on the Good Wife set — her former Law & Order: Criminal Intent partner Chris Noth.

Sciorra joins a growing list of Season 4 guest stars that includes previously announced newbies Amanda Peet, Maura Tierney, Nathan Lane, Kristin Chenoweth and Marc Warren.

The Good Wife kicks off its fourth season on Sunday, Sept. 30 on CBS.

  • Haven’t seen Ms. Sciorra in a while. I don’t generally watch TGW because while I love Alan Cumming and Matt Czuchrey, I dislike Margulies. I may tune in for AS’s episodes.

    • As much I respect the right to your own opinion, I must ask what is it that you don’t like about Julianna Marguiles?! She is perfection in this role.

      I would challenge you to try to watch this series because it truly is the best drama on TV overall. From the acting to the writing to the production. It is just stellar!

  • Sciorra is such a one-note, monotone actress, I can only hope her arc is one episode.

    • I don’t agree that she’s one-note, monotone in her roles. Her character in the movie Jungle Fever is quite different than her character on The Sopranos, for example. I look forward to seeing her on The Good Wife.

      • ITA. Her roles in Little City and Destination Anywhere weren’t the same either. I like her.

  • What a confusing article? You can’t just say Annabella is guest starring rather than make it so confusing?

  • Will they have time to do something with their regulars this year?
