Frasier Vet David Hyde Pierce Is Joining The Good Wife for Season 6

David Hyde Pierce has booked a recurring role on The Good Wife's sixth season, CBS announced Thursday.

The Frasier alum, who's focused mostly on theater in recent years, will play a legal commentator on a cable news network who is very vocal about his disapproval of the corruption and murder rate in Chicago and ultimately decides to run for office to effect change from within.

"We couldn’t be more thrilled and flattered that David’s making The Good Wife his first TV role since Frasier," showrunners Robert and Michelle King said in a joint statement. “We’re tremendous fans of his dramatic skills as well as his comedy.”


The Good Wife kicks off Season 6 on Sunday, September 21 at 9:30pm on CBS.
