WATCHMEN's Matthew Goode is headed to CBS' THE GOOD WIFE.
According to TV Line, the actor has booked a major recurring role on the hit legal drama, now in its fifth season. Goode will take on the role of "a prosecutor who befriends Julianna Margulies' Alicia after having a crisis of faith and deciding to chart a new direction for his career."
Goode's first episode will air in the spring.
The Good Wife stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick, a wife and mother who reinvents her life following her husband's sex and political corruption scandal. Four years into her tenure at the law firm of Lockhart/Gardner, Alicia accepts a prestigious partner offer from her bosses, Diane Lockhart, Will Gardner and David Lee. However, a mutual attraction with Will leaves Alicia conflicted after she agrees to renew her vows with her husband, Peter, who has won the gubernatorial election with the help of campaign manager Eli Gold. After much thought, Alicia agrees to leave Lockhart/Gardner to start a new firm with her colleague, Cary Agos, who is unable to convince investigator Kalinda Sharma to join them. Now, Alicia must find a way to balance her evolving career, her new position as First Lady of Illinois and her roles as a wife and mother to her teenage children, Zach and Grace. Emboldened by the prospect of taking control of her future, Alicia bravely ventures into unknown territory.
Goode will next be seen on DEATH COMES TO PEMBERLY, set to air on PBS next year.
