'The Good Wife' Exclusive: First Look at Leelee Sobieski's guest role

Leelee-Sobieski-The-Good-WifeImage Credit: John Paul Filo/CBSThe parade of guest stars marching through CBS’ vaunted legal drama The Good Wife just doesn’t stop. Last night’s new episode featured Michael J. Fox in a killer role, and in January, the Golden Globe- and Emmy-nominated Leelee Sobieski—who starred in memorable TV movies like 1999’s Joan of Arc and 2001’s Uprising—shows up. EW has your first look at her guest role above! As Michael Ausiello reported previously, Sobieski will guest-star as the girlfriend of one of Lockhart-Gardner-Bond’s most influential clients. Said client—and Sobieski—are accused of using prescription stimulants. You’ll notice that series regular Matt Czuchry—who plays Cary, the foe of central character Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies)—also appears in the photo. Will Leelee’s character and Cary be working together in some capacity? Looks like we’ll have to wait until January to find out.

    I love this show…great writing…great acting…great story lines….

    • Seddie Forever!!!!!!!!!

      It is a good show, and last night with Michael J Fox was outstanding

      Random thought – I wish they would re-air Joan of Arc, I remember it being really good when it came on tv all those years ago

  • Shane Saunders

    Thanks for the First Look, Tanner. It’ll be interesting to see if Cary is somehow involved!

    (BTW, great Good Wife article in this past week’s EW!)

  • Allison

    Also, behind Leelee, is the lawyer of the politician that was accused of sexual assault by the hotel masseuse.

    • Danielle

      That is what I was thinking. Although everytime I see him I think Marshal Marshall from In Plain Sight.

      • Di

        Marshall Marshall Mann is my favorite. Last season’s finale when (SPOILER) Mary got shot and his acting and reaction to it all? I freakin’ love Fred Weller.

      • Jeri

        Yes, that is Marshall Marshall. The best of that show was the 1st year. The main character got b-tchy and unlikeable after the 1st year. I still watch hoping they’ll regress to the better days.

    • John

      That was the guy who got into the brawl with Will, correct?

  • Eline

    Yes, that does look like Frederick Weller who played Joe Kent’s lawyer, Wilk Hobson. Wonder what he’s doing there…

  • Patti

    Can LeeLee go to real jail? Never liked her, plus what kind of name is LeeLee for an adult?

  • bamalam

    I’ve always liked Leelee. Hope she does well.

  • Ben

    At least Leelee gets to keep her clothes on for this role. She seems to be “going adult” for her movie roles these days.

  • Jeri

    LeeLee has a baby now doesn’t she? There are a lot worse names around than LeeLee.

  • Trace

    Note to self. Time to check out Leelee Sobieski’s recent movie roles.

  • margarita

    I think Michael J. Fox was fabulous. Hope he visits from time to time. Lee Lee has been away from the industry for so long. I thought she had retired from acting.Just love this show.

  • Jean Guy Levesque

    I can’t stand to look at Tommie Selleck’s ugly mustache and his old wrinkled face on TV. His acting is garbage and he spews lines like he’s making a grand speech, what a LOSER. Vive la Quebec!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
