‘The Good Wife’ Adds To Its Recurring Cast For This Fall

Over the last few days, several actors have landed recurring guest roles on the popular CBS drama The Good Wife.

First, there is English actress Juliet Rylance (‘Sinister’ and ‘Frances Ha’) who, according to TV Line, will have the recurring role of Holly, a whip-smart Assistant State’s Attorney who shares a past with sexually open detective Kalinda (series regular Archie Panjabi) and will be her new love interest.

Then there is actress Melissa George (‘Hunted’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’) who will have the major recurring role of Marilyn, the in-house ethics attorney to the newly-elected Governor Peter Florrick (series regular Chris Noth); and given Peter’s past record, Marilyn could provide some pretty intense distraction since she is being described as “smart, sexy, savvy and a stickler for honesty and observing the rules.

TV viewers will also remember George from ‘Alias’, ‘In Treatment’, ‘Lie to Me’ and the Australian soap opera ‘Home and Away’ as well as the box office films ’30 Days of Night’ and ‘The Amityville Horror’.

Lastly, Deadline announced that actor Ben Rappaport (‘Outsourced’ and Broadway’s ‘Picnic’) will have the recurring role of an as-yet unnamed four-year associate at Lockhart-Gardner.

Among his other credits are the box office film ‘Hope Springs’ and a guest appearance on ‘Elementary’.

‘The Good Wife’ will be back on CBS for its fifth season starting on Sunday, September 29 at 9/8c.
