Don’t even think about slapping her, Christine Baranski. Sarah Steele, who portrayed Eli Gold’s sarcastic daughter Marissa on The Good Wife, has signed on to reprise her role in CBS’s upcoming spinoff. Steele will be joining Baranski and Cush Jumbo as series regulars for the still-untitled legal drama, which will be premiering on CBS’s All Access streaming service in February. The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King will also be back to serve as the showrunners and executive producers. C’mon, this just means Alan Cumming has to appear on the show for an episode or ten.
