Image Credit: Craig Blankenhorn/CBSThe Good Wife has tracked down a possible witness in the case of Kalinda’s ambiguous sexual orientation: Lili Taylor.

The Six Feet Under actress joins the CBS drama in November as a public defender with professional (and possibly personal) ties to Archie Panjabi’s intensely private, potentially gay character.

“Kalinda worries her past will be used against her by a competing investigator,” explains executive producer Robert King, “and has to convince [Taylor] to not expose confidential information.”

Might said confidential information involve a romantic history between the two? Teases King: “That is for viewers to find out.”
