Mad Men's Talia Balsam is heading to The Good Wife, joining that show's long, long list of fancy guest stars. She'll play a political reporter, according to TV Line, though thanks to Homeland she seems like a perfect political spouse. (R.I.P., Walden.) Lots of people have bounced between the worlds of Sterling Cooper and Lockhart Gardner — Anna Camp, Aaron Stanton, Cara Buono Michael Gladis — which makes sense, given the shows' prestige and shared commitment to enviable officewear.
