Matthew Perry to Reprise His Good Wife Role

Get More: Uncategorized

The presidential election may be over, but Matthew Perry is returning to The Good Wife, so the Illinois governor race is just getting started.

The Go On lead will reprise his role of Mike Kresteva in an episode airing in early 2013, the network announced Friday.

In April, Perry told TVLine he hoped starring in NBC’s Go On wouldn’t mean giving up his portrayal of Peter’s somewhat nasty rival for the governor’s office.

“In the last five years I’ve tried to do a mix of comedy and drama, so it’s been really fun to play a kind of sociopathic jerk lawyer,” he said of his Good Wife run. “It’s a fun character for people to sort of root against, and The Good Wife is one of my favorite shows, so it’s all been very cool.”

The Good Wife airs Sundays at 9/8c on CBS.

  • Outside of Friends I have always enjoyed Mstthew Perry more in dramatic roles – including this one. Glad “Go On” and NBC are letting him do both.

  • How is this hilariously talented man still single? And where can I apply to be his slave? I promise to fan him and feed him grapes all day.

    • I don’t think he is…if I’m not mistaken, he is still dating Lizzy Caplan.

  • I have to say he is aging very well and really glad he’s returning to TGW. Now all we need is another confrontation with Alicia.

  • TGW is one of the best dramas on Television. I’m not a huge Matthew Perry fan but I do love his role on this series.

  • I’m glad. I like when he’s funny but I think they don’t give him enough credit for how good he is as a dramatic actor. He’s really good at playing mean jerks like Kresteva
