The Good Wife Casting Scoop: Look Who's Coming Back!

at . Comments

A client who makes Lemond Bishop look like a saint will be making his return to The Good Wife in early 2015.

Co-creator Robert King has confirmed that Dylan Baker will reprise the role of alleged killer Colin Sweeney on an upcoming episode of The Good Wife Season 6.

And he'll be bringing Laura Benanti as Colin’s third wife, Renata, along with him.

Teases King:

"Colin Sweeney wants the firm to sue a TV show for defamation after the show steals his character, and makes it look like he killed his first wife. Laura Benanti also returns as his estranged third wife, Renata, who decides to testify against him in court."

Baker earned a well-deserved Emmy nomination earlier this year for his portrayal of Sweeney.

The Good Wife, meanwhile, airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS. Except when NFL games run long and annoyingly cause it to air much later. Don't you hate when that happens?!?

Good Wife Quotes

It was romantic because it didn't happen. So you got a little bit of both, life, us together and now romance.

It's hard to be on this side.
