A very familiar face is about to join the Florrick/Agos family.
Taye Diggs (Private Practice, currently Murder in the First) will recur on the upcoming sixth season of The Good Wife. Diggs will play Dean Levine-Wilkins, an equity partner at Lockhart/Gardner who decides to join this person (spoiler alert!) at Alicia and Cary’s new firm.
E! Online was the first to report the news.
