The Good Wife continues to accumulate big-name recurring guest-stars: Michael J. Fox, Amy Sedaris, Martha Plimpton, Carrie Preston, and now, Matthew Perry, CBS announced today. He'll play Mike, an "extremely charming" lawyer whom Alicia serves on a panel with and later begins to distrust. Classic Alicia, always not trusting anyone on account of being cheated on and publicly humiliated and also never getting therapy to help her deal with her issues around shame, sexuality, and confidence! Perry's first episode will air at the end of March, which means if you start now, you can rewatch his three-episode arc as an extremely charming lawyer on The West Wing a little more than 400 times.
