Maura Tierney is coming to "The Good Wife." CBS just announced, adding that "Hustle's" Marc Warren is joining up too. Both are called "recurring," which of course means Tierney will be in only a handful of episodes — network did not say what a handful exactly was — but she'll play a "self-made millionaire who has become the doyenne of Chicago Democratic politics."
Aha. Hmmm. So that would mean .?.?.
In any event, this is a significant get for "Wife" — part of a very active off-season in terms of actor musical chairs, with Jennifer Hudson also landing an arc role on next season's "Smash," and Ray Romano on "Parenthood." Tierney has battled breast cancer, which prevented her from joining "Parenthood's" first season. After recuperation, she joined "Rescue Me" in another particularly memorable arc that helped close out that worthie's run.
