Chris Noth is the main bridge between the Law & Order and Good Wife universes, but he is not alone: Many guest stars overlap between the two shows (and more if we include SVU), and now there's one more person to add to the list. Jill Hennessy, never more glorious than as ADA Claire Kincaid on OG Law & Order from 1993 through '96, is heading to The Good Wife, CBS announced. She'll play a "power lawyer" in the March 16 episode that also includes Bill de Blasio playing himself. Your move, Sam Waterston.
