David Hyde Pierce will join Taye Diggs and Steven Pasquale and guest star on the new season of The Good Wife.
This will be Pierce's first television role since Frasier ended in 2004, in which he won four Emmys for his role as Dr. Niles Crane, and he will join the cast in a recurring role as "a highly respected cable news legal commentator who is so disgusted with the corruption and murder rate in Chicago that he decides to run for office in order to affect change."
"We couldn't be more thrilled and flattered that David's making 'The Good Wife' his first TV role since 'Frasier.' We're tremendous fans of his dramatic skills as well as his comedy."
Robert and Michelle King, executive producers/showrunners, say in a statement
The Good Wife returns for season 6 on Sunday, September 21 on CBS.
