Kristin Chenoweth will be another addition to the CBS legal drama The Good Wife, who also announced on Monday that Maura Tierney would be appearing in the show’s fourth season.
CBS News reports that Chenoweth has appeared in TV comedies, like GCB, Glee, and Pushing Daisies, and will now take a recurring role in the legal drama, which focuses on Alicia Florrick (played by Julianna Margulies), an attorney. The show centers around her cases, as well as relationships with her children and estranged husband.
Chenoweth, a Tony and Emmy-winning actress, will have a recurring role in The Good Wife, where she plays a “top-of-her-game political reporter” who tries to find out more about Peter Florrick (Chris Noth), his campaign, and marriage to Alicia (Margulies), according to USA Today.
Kristin Chenoweth is set to debut in her new role during the show’s premiere in September. The Orlando Sentinel reports that Maura Tierney, whose credits include ER, will be included as “a self-made millionaire who has become the doyenne of Chicago Democratic politics.” British actor Marc Warren was also announced on Monday as the mysterious husband of Kalinda (played by Emmy award-winner Archie Panjabi).
Chenoweth has also appeared on Broadway, with credits including Steel Pier, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and The Apple Tree, according to Broadway World. She has also appeared Off-Broadway, with credits like The Fantasticks, Scapin, A New Brain, and Candide.
