'The Good Wife': Nathan Lane joins season 4

Posted on

It’s been a busy few days in The Good Wife casting office, and the latest actor to score a role on the show’s upcoming fourth season is Nathan Lane. He will appear on a recurring basis and make his debut in September’s season premiere.

Lane will play “a bottom line-obsessed manager imposed on Lockhart & Gardner by the bank to cut costs” and will help get the firm back in financial shape. His arrival will ruffle feathers at the firm —  mostly those of Will and Diane.

Lane’s casting is the fourth such announcement his week to come out of the show. On Monday it was announced that ER actress Maura Tierney and British actor Marc Warren would be appearing in the season premiere, the latter as Kalinda’s manipulative ex-husband. And yesterday Kristin Chenoweth joined the cast in a recurring role.
