Indie Darling Parker Posey To Appear on THE GOOD WIFE

According to TV Line, actress Parker Posey, who has been a fan favorite among the independent movie set for years and frequent scene stealer on TV, will be joining her “sometime co-star” (and real-life best friend) actor Alan Cumming on THE GOOD WIFE.

Ironic or not, she will play the “never-before-seen” estranged wife of Cumming’s campaign strategist character Eli Gould in an episode slated to air in October. This casting will flesh out the complicated family matters for Gould, as viewers have already been introduced to their daughter Marissa (Sarah Steele).

Cumming and Parker have appeared together before – in the films The Anniversary Party and Josie and the Pussycats – but this will be the first time they work together on the small screen.

TV viewers may remember Parker from her roles on Parks and Recreation, Boston Legal and perhaps even the short-lived sitcom The Return of Jezebel James with Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under).

The Good Wife will be back for its third season on CBS on September 25 at 9/8c.
