The Good Wife Retains David Krumholtz to Play Alicia's [Spoiler]

David Krumholtz The Good Wife

The Good Wife is recruiting a noted Numb3rs cruncher to (presumably) help Alicia win that coveted State’s Attorney post.

TVLine has learned exclusively that David Krumholtz is joining CBS’ marquee drama in the potentially recurring role of Josh, a top campaign specialist hired by Alicia’s manager, Jonathan (Steven Pasquale).

One part Hollywood and two parts political, Josh is known as a master of negative campaigning (a role first teased in this week’s Ask Ausiello). He also believes candidates should just shut up and do what the professionals say, so his interactions with Alicia should be hysterical.

In Sunday’s Good Wife, Alicia took the first step towards formally entering the race for State’s Attorney.

The Good Wife gig brings Krumholtz back into the CBS fold following the short-lived Partners and, of course, the long-running Numb3rs.

He’s slated to appear in this season’s ninth episode.
