Pierce will play a highly respected cable news legal commentator who is so disgusted by the corruption and murder rate in Chicago that he decides to run for office — like, for instance, State’s Attorney?! — in order to affect change.

The Good Wife ended its fifth season with Alicia mulling a run for State’s Attorney.

    Okay, so I’ve been meaning to finally check out this show as it is, but this news makes me even more inclined to get moving on that. Always good to have Pierce on TV again-will definitely have to watch this.

  5. Andrew Hass says:

    The Good Wife continues to cast great actors.Plus it could be good to see David Hyde Pierce in a dramatic role.

    refuse to watch.
    can not stand juliana marguiles.

    • Jess says:

      Nobody watches for Julianna Margulies. Everyone watches for Archie Panjabi, Matt Czuchry, and Alan Cumming.

      • Kate says:

        I dont… I like Archie but the Kalinda role by now is meaningless i never and i say it again NEVER cared for Cary/Matt. and Alan is funny but i don’t watch for Eli alone… I watch for Alicia and Jules… so i beg you leave your generalisation at home because i sure as hell know many other than me watching for Julianna!

        Speak for yourself. As much as I really like the other three, the main reason I tune in week after week is because of Alicia and Julianna

    It’s been a long time coming for DHP to be back on TV.

  9. Coal says:

    Just as long as TGW keeps producing well written, intriguing, insightful and entertaining legal/political story arc’s and keep the romantic drivel to a bear minimum I’m good.

  10. Ella says:

    Amazing! TGW has the best guest stars on television. Well, them and The Mindy Project…
