Good Wife Scoop: Sarah Silverman's Racy Role Is Revealed!

On Tuesday night, the scribes behind CBS’ The Good Wife revealed on Twitter that actress-comedian Sarah Silverman would guest star in this season’s penultimate episode.

Well, TVLine now can reveal details about Silverman’s ripped-from-the-headlines character.

According to sources, Silverman will play Stephanie, the owner of an Ashley Madison-esque website who hires Lockhart Gardner to defend her in a civil case. The plaintiff claims that Stephanie’s Match.com-for-adulterers site caused her faithful husband to cheat on her… and in turn led to his gruesome, wrongful death.

Other guest stars on tap for The Good Wife‘s remaining Season 2 episodes include Michael J. Fox (who next week makes his third appearance as the cunning Louis Canning), Raising Hope‘s Martha Plimpton (reprising her role as attorney Patti Nyholm) and Mad Men‘s Aaron Staton (aka Ken Cosgrove), popping up during May sweeps as a “hungry, Terminator-like” attorney.
