The Good Wife spoilers for Season 6 tease an exciting new addition to TGW cast. David Hyde Pierce, star of the iconic sitcom Frasier has signed on to the cast, and is slated to appear in early November during episode 7. Pierce’s character will be a recurring focal point of several episodes, and is playing the part of Alicia Florrick’s newest enemy in Chicago.
According to the October 27th edition of GLOBE Magazine, “The 55 year old actor, who’d taken a ten year time out from prime time has signed up for The Good Wife’s 6th season as a recurring character. Pierce plays a cable news legal commentator who’s fed up with the corruption and murder rate in Chicago and decides to runs for the district attorney’s office, pitting him against Julianna Margulies’ character Alicia Florrick.”
GLOBE goes on to explain, “The drama struggled late last season, and now producers hope for a ratings’ boost from a variety of guest stars including Private Practice hunk Taye Diggs, Rescue Me’s Steven Pasquale, and The Following stunner Connie Nielsen.”
David Hyde Pierce basically drifted in to oblivion after her impressive run as Dr. Frasier Crane and took an entire decade off from television shows to work on his true passion, the theater. Pierce even won a Tony Award in 2007 for his performance in “Curtains.” He’s also scheduled to return to Broadway next year directing a new musical titled “It Should Have Been you.”
