at . Comments

The Good Wife has signed yet another big name for season three.

With Lisa Edelstein already on board as Will's former partner, TV Guide confirms that Eddie Izzard (most recently seen on United States of Tara) will appear on at least one episode of the CBS hit this fall.

The veteran actor and comedian will portray Abbott Thrush, an upper-class English barrister who will take on Lockhart/Gardner in a libel case.

"Eddie Izzard has the one thing we're always looking for: enormous talent with both comedy and drama," co-creators and executive producers Robert and Michelle King told the website. "We couldn't be more excited to have him on the show!"

The Kings also made it clear that Izzard could return down the line, similar to how Michael J. Fox shows up sporadically on the series.

The Good Wife returns on September 25.
