Megan Hilty and Other 'Really Good' Broadway Talent to Guest on THE GOOD WIFE

THE GOOD WIFE recurring star and Broadway vet Matthew Morrison (FINDING NEVERLAND) recently revealed to the New York Post that more stage talent is headed to the CBS series.

"Megan [Hilty] is going to be on it. I probably shouldn't leak anyone else, but we have some really good Broadway stars coming up on the final episodes. We could do a Broadway musical with all the talent on that stage. Alan Cumming is on all the time . . . Christine Baranski," he said.

The actress is slated for this Sunday's episode, titled "Landing," where she'll appear as 'Holly Westfall', a rival business owner to Kurt McVeigh (Gary Cole).

Hilty last starred on Broadway in NOISES OFF and before that in 9 TO 5 and WICKED. Among her recent small screen credits are GIRLFRIENDS' GUIDE TO DIVORCE, SEAN SAVES THE WORLD, the hit musical drama SMASH and more.

THE GOOD WIFE has been named one of AFI's Top Television Shows, won the Television Critics Award for Outstanding Achievement in Drama and garnered five Emmy nominations and three Golden Globe nominations.

The drama stars Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick, a disgraced wife who returns to work as a lawyer after her husband, Peter Florrick, is imprisoned following a scandal. After starting her own firm and finding success as a litigator alongside her colleagues Diane Lockhart and Cary Agos, Peter's trusted advisor, Eli Gold, convinces Alicia to run for State's Attorney, the position once infamously held by her husband. Following a win at the polls after a hard-fought campaign, Alicia is forced to step down from office when voter fraud threatens the Democratic party in the state of Illinois.

Now, with her political career over before it began and without a law firm to call her own, Alicia cautiously begins to practice law, BECOMING an attorney for arrestees seeking release on bail, with the assistance of Jason Crouse, a calm, experienced hourly investigator whom she hires. In the course of her new job, she meets Lucca Quinn, a fellow lawyer who competes for her clients. And as Alicia tries to reinvent herself, Peter, now Governor of Illinois, contemplates a bid for the Presidency that may thrust her into the spotlight once again.
