Fox will guest star in an episode as Simon Canning, a shrewd and cynical litigator whom Alicia (Julianna Margulies) faces in a massive class action. Per CBS, “Canning is willing to use anything in court, including symptoms of his neurological condition, to create sympathy for his otherwise unsympathetic client: a giant pharmaceutical company.” Can’t wait to hear the strategy talk on this one. Already hoping he’ll recur like Martha Plimpton’s Patti Nyholm did in season 1?
