Two of the sharpest thorns in Alicia Florrick’s side are returning to The Good Wife next year.

Dylan Baker will be back as fan-favorite Colin Sweeney in a 2015 episode, while Laura Benanti (Nashville) will also return as Colin’s third wife Renata, Entertainment Weekly is reporting.

Colin will reportedly hire Florrick/Agos/Lockhart/whomever to sue a TV show. Benanti’s Renata, meanwhile, will agree to testify against him in court.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets?

* Adam Brody (The O.C.) has been tapped to star in the new DirecTV drama Billy & Billie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The 10-episode series follows Billy (Brody) as he falls in love with his stepsister Billie (Boardwalk Empire‘s Lisa Joyce).

* Netflix is developing a live-action series based on Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events books, our sister site Deadline is reporting. The books, which also inspired a 2004 Jim Carrey movie, follow three young orphans and their wicked tormenter.

* Jeff Fahey (Lost) will recur on the final season of FX’s Justified, The Wrap reports. Fahey will play Zachariah Randolph, a “weathered” man in his 60s.

About a Boy star Minnie Driver has joined the cast of NBC’s Peter Pan Live! Driver will play adult Wendy, in addition to narrating the musical, which premieres Thursday, Dec. 4, at 8/7c.

    Does Adam Brody’s new series mean that’s a no-go for The Cosmopolitans on Amazon?

    A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS TV SERIES?? I’m so excited.

  3. Hayes says:

    Colin Sweeney is not *this* fan’s favorite.

  4. Steven says:

    I have a feeling Renata agreeing to testify against Colin means it’s time for him to find a fourth wife.

    Dylan Baker’s annual drop-ins on TGW are among the highlights of my TV year.

  6. LDS says:

    Laura Benanti can do no wrong. And Dylan Baker, best evil creepy guy on tv.

  7. Amy says:

    I love Colin Sweeney… but when is Kurt coming back??

  8. I’M SO HERE for a ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ show, the books are my favorite series and it can translate very well if they don’t make it too childish.
