Matthew Morrison is here to (potentially) ruin everything for the Florricks. The Glee star joins The Good Wife on Sunday, March 6 in the new role of Assistant US Attorney Connor Fox and he's got his sights set on taking down Peter Florrick (Chris Noth). AUSA Connor Fox is leading the grand jury proceedings against the governor, so he's sure going to make things difficult for Peter, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Eli (Alan Cumming).
Morrison makes his debut in "Hearing." Check out the exclusive first photo above. "I'm ecstatic to be playing a role on my favorite show on TV," he tweeted after his role was announced in January.
In the episode, Alicia, Eli and Peter's lawyer Mike Tascioni (Will Patton), the ex-husband of Elsbeth Tascioni (Carrie Preston), attempt to discover what charges are being leveled against Peter. Viewers know it has something to do with one of his donors, possibly, but likely not his vote rigging for Alicia. Meanwhile, Alicia attempt to have a quiet weekend with Jason (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), but her mom and brother make things very difficult. Stockard Channing returns as Veronica and Dallas Roberts as Owen. Margo Martindale returns as Ruth Eastman and John Magaro is back as FBI agent Roland Hlavin.
Other upcoming guests in The Good Wife's final season include Blair Underwood and Gary Cole. CBS announced the series would come to an end with a commercial during the Super Bowl.
"Being a part of The Good Wife has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career," Margulies said in a statement released by CBS. "As an actress and a producer, it has been an absolute honor to be a part of a series that, throughout seven years, never settled on being just good…but always strived to be extraordinary. I have witnessed magic happen when Robert and Michelle King put pen to paper, and it has been a privilege to be in the company of their brilliance. To the most amazing and talented cast and crew, there will always be a special place in my heart for our Good Wife family. As we close the book on our beloved show, I am humbled and grateful to know that together, we created and were a part of something truly remarkable."
The Good Wife airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on CBS.
