Nathan Lane Returns to CBS's THE GOOD WIFE Tonight
Broadway's Nathan Lane returns to guest star in the CBS drama series The Good Wife tonight, January 27th. In the episode entitled "The Seven Day Rule", when Clarke (Lane) decides that the Will and Diane are hurting his efforts to erase the firm's debts, he and Louis Canning, the firm's new creditor, take them to court to argue against an extension of their deadline to pay off the debts. The episode airs 9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT on the CBS Television Network.
Lane has appeared on Broadway in The Producers, Guys and Dolls, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Addams Family and more. His film credits include The Birdcage, The Lion King and he has appeared on TV's Modern Family.
The Good Wife stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick, a wife and mother who reclaims control of her personal and professional lives after her husband, Peter, is embroiled in a sex and political corruption scandal. Reentering the workforce, she is awarded a job at a prestigious Chicago law firm over Cary Agos, who recently returned to the firm after working at the state's attorney's office under Peter, who was reelected after his conviction was overturned.
As a fourth-year associate, Alicia's career is on the fast track, with firm partner Diane Lockhart expressing an interest in mentoring her further. Although Alicia thought she found an ally in Kalinda, the firm's enigmatic investigator, she is devastated to learn that Kalinda slept with Peter. She separates from Peter and briefly gives in to a longstanding mutual attraction with Will Gardner, the firm's other partner. Despite his betrayal, Alicia has conflicted feelings for her husband, who moves back into their old family home with their teenage kids, Zach and Grace, and launches a gubernatorial campaign with the help of image consultant Eli Gold. As Alicia adapts to changes at home and at work, she continues to redefine and rediscover the woman she wishes to be.
