On March 25, Alicia Florrick gets a new friend when Matthew Perry joins The Good Wife in a recurring role as Mike -- a Chicago attorney with questionable motives in an episode titled Blue Ribbon Panel.
The title comes from the 7-person panel Mike heads up and Alicia is assigned to in order to investigate a police shooting.
But anyone expecting Mike to have a single Bing-esque quality will be sorely disappointed as co-creator Robert King tells ETonline, "this is a character unlike anything we've ever seen Matthew play."
"No one skates as effortlessly between drama and comedy as Matthew Perry, so we're especially thrilled to have him on the show,” he said in a statement alongside his co-creator, Michelle King. "We're huge, huge fans, and are nearly giddy over what he can do with the role."
The Good Wife airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on CBS.
