THE GOOD WIFE Goes British with Barrister Eddie Izzard

UNITED STATES OF TARA (Showtime) -Chicken 'n' Corn- Eddie Izzard

If anything will, this news from TVGuide.com might just take your mind off (for a few seconds anyway) of Alicia and Will’s kiss and what they did behind closed doors. Eddie Izzard is set to guest star on CBS’ THE GOOD WIFE, playing the role of Abbott Thrush, “an upper-class English barrister brought in to fight Lockhart Gardner in a libel case that finds its way into British court.”

Co-creators and executive producers Robert and Michelle King were drawn to Izzard’s skill and ability to perform both comedy and drama. Though signed on for only one episode, they hint that there is the possibility that Izzard will return again in the future.

Other previously announced season 3 guest stars include Lisa Edelstein and Kelli Giddish, who reprises her role as Kalinda’s friend – with benefits? – Sophia.

The Good Wife premieres on Sunday, September 25 at 9/8c.
