Amy Sedaris Heading to The Good Wife

Amy Sedaris.

The last thing The Good Wife needs these days is more characters, and yet the news that Amy Sedaris will be doing a multi-episode arc on the show is nothing but delightful. Such are her joy-inducing powers! She'll play a lobbyist who goes head-to-head with Alan Cumming's Eli Gold, which sounds great, except that Lisa Edelstein as Will's former flame sounded great, too, but has turned out to be deeply irritating. Sedaris's recent guest spots on Raising Hope as Martha Plimpton's fancy-schmancy cousin were so fun that one almost wishes Sedaris's time with Lockhart Gardener were geared toward Plimpton's recurring character, but that's just getting into straight-up spinoff territory.
