While The Good Wife airs a rerun this week, at least fans of the CBS drama have an intriguing guest star to look forward to:

Alan Cumming has landed a role on the critically acclaimed series. Best known to television audiences for his roles on The L Word and SyFy's Tin Man, the Scottish actor will portray an image consultant named Eli Gold.

Graham Phillips, who plays computer savvy teen Zach Florrick, told TV Guide Magazine of the casting/storyline ahead:

"Zach uncovers a bunch of information about his father that proves he's more innocent than everyone thought he was. And Alan's character is really intense and basically tries to turn around Peter's career. He says that Zach's own investigation work is the best the campaign's had so far."

The Good Wife returns on February 2 with a new episode titled "Bad."
