The Good Wife has landed Christina Ricci, star of the ill-fated Pan Am, for a fourth-season episode. She'll play "a controversial comedienne needing Lockhart/Gardner's help," CBS tweeted. Maybe Ricci found out about the slew of Outstanding Guest Actor Emmy nominations that actors like Michael J. Fox, Dylan Baker, Martha Plimpton, and Alan Cumming have been reaping? Or maybe she just heard Brian Dennehy and Amanda Peet are guest starring this season and wanted to hang out.
