The Good Wife Season 7 just added another awesome name.

With Jeffrey Dean Morgan on board as a new investigator, we can now confirm that the CBS drama will also feature Margo Martindale in a recurring capacity this fall.

The beloved former Justified and The Americans actress will portray Willa Eastman on The Good Wife.

According to a press release, Eastman is “a top campaign operative" who has enjoyed "past successes by underdog presidential candidates in Iowa.”

Look for her to clash with Eli because she is known for “hiding her intelligence and cunning under a fake, folksy charm.”

At the conclusion of Season 6, Peter Florrick confirmed his intention to run for President… of the United States!

“Every year we look for a character and an actor who can go toe-to-toe with Eli Gold and make him blink,” executive producers Robert and Michelle King said in a statement.

”So we were thrilled when Margo Martindale agreed to play Willa Eastman. Her ability to mix comedy and drama is unparalleled. And we can’t wait to see how Margo and Alan deal with each other."

The Good Wife Season 7 kicks off on Sunday, October 4.
