Good Wife: Mad Men Actress to Guest in Season 5

 The Good Wife Talia BalsamLooks like media interest in Peter and Alicia Florrick will continue unabated now that the former half of The Good Wife‘s power couple has landed in the Governor’s office.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Talia Balsam (Mad Men, Homeland) has been cast as a political reporter in an early Season 5 episode.

As the acclaimed CBS drama preps for its Sept. 29 return, a clearer picture is emerging of what plot lines will take center stage. Already, Melissa George (Hunted, Alias) has signed on for the recurring role of Marilyn, newly elected Governor Florrick’s in-house ethics counsel.

Meanwhile, Zach Grenier (who plays David Lee) has been upgraded to series regular status, while America Ferrera, Gary Cole and Emmy-nominated Carrie Preston have all booked return engagements.

The Good Wife‘s upcoming fifth season will also examine Alicia and Cary’s impending mutiny from Lockhart Gardner, which will lead to a “civil war” with their new firm, exec producer Robert King told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills. King added that the focus will “more about our team” and “not the guest stars coming in.”
