If you miss seeing Morena Baccarin on Homeland playing dutiful wife Jessica Brody, don’t fret — she’ll be popping up on The Good Wife very soon. EW has exclusively learned that the Firefly, V, and Stargate SG-1 star has just booked a guest-starring gig on the CBS drama.
Baccarin will appear in episode 17, slated to air in early March, as a high-powered executive who gets entangled with weirdo Colin Sweeney (Dylan Baker, who returns in the episode). As series creators Robert and Michelle King explain, “She’ll be playing the executive-event planner at a large corporation who accuses our old friend Colin Sweeney — the deliciously creepy Dylan Baker — of sexual harassment.”
A fan of the show, Baccarin tweeted last April, “Watching The Good Wife. Soooo gooooooood!” EW hears that tweet helped with her casting. “I’m a huge fan of the show, I’ve watched every single hour of it,” Baccarin tells EW. “Every actor in the cast is phenomenal and I’m so excited to be asked to join them for this episode.” The Kings add: “We’ve loved Morena going all the way back to Firefly. And she is doing just stunning work on Homeland.”
