Madam Secretary Adds Jill Hennessy

Jill Hennessy Madam Secretary

Jill Hennessy is returning to CBS’ Sunday lineup this fall, but not on The Good Wife.

The Crossing Jordan alum is joining the cast of Madam Secretary in the recurring role of Jane Fellows, Henry’s (Tim Daly) new Defense Intelligence Agency handler who is a commanding, yet discreet political operator known for keeping cool in a crisis, and who may not always see eye-to-eye with Henry.

In addition to her three-episode arc in Season 5 of The Good Wife, Hennessy’s recent credits include HBO’s Luck and the French police procedural Jo. Look for  Hennessy to debut in Madam Secretary‘s Season 2 premiere in Sunday, Oct 4 at 8/7c.
