Martha Plimpton Returning to THE GOOD WIFE?

The Good Wife (CBS) - Heart reports exclusive information that Martha Plimpton is in serious talks to reprise her role on CBS’ THE GOOD WIFE. The show’s producers have wanted to bring Plimpton back ever since she played the memorable character of Patti Nyholm last season. Luckily, it appears that despite the second season renewal of her current show Raising Hope, Plimpton’s schedule will have the flexibility to enable her to shoot The Good Wife this spring.

Plimpton’s character, Patti Nyholm, is an attorney who represented several cases against Stern, Lockhart & Gardner (now Lockhart, Gardner & Bond). She used her pregnancy, and later her baby, to garner sympathy and buy time for her case. She appeared in the season one episodes “Crash” and “Heart” of The Good Wife.

Where are they now?: Do you remember Martha Plimpton from the movies The Goonies and Parenthood? Though Plimpton is not in the show, you can now watch the TV series Parenthood in its second season on NBC on Tuesday at 10pm.
