EMMY AND TONY AWARD-WINNING ACTOR DAVID HYDE PIERCE JOINS "THE GOOD WIFE" IN RECURRING ROLE FOR SEASON SIX

Role Marks Pierce's First Appearance in a Television Series Since "Frasier" Concluded in 2004

NEW YORK - August 28, 2014 - Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor David Hyde Pierce will join the critically acclaimed drama THE GOOD WIFE in a recurring role during the show's upcoming sixth season. Pierce will play a highly respected cable news legal commentator who is so disgusted by the corruption and murder rate in Chicago that he decides to run for office in order to affect change. The role will mark Pierce's first appearance in a television series since "Frasier" ended its run in 2004.

A veteran of the stage and screen, Pierce's television credits include "Frasier," for which he earned four Emmy Awards for his portrayal of Dr. Niles Crane, and Norman Lear's political satire "The Powers That Be." His feature credits include "Little Man Tate," "Sleepless in Seattle," "Nixon," "Full Frontal" and "A Bug's Life" and "Wet, Hot, American Summer." On Broadway, he appeared in "Monty Python's Spamalot," "Curtains," for which he won a Tony Award, "Le Bete" and "Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike," earning another Tony nomination for his starring role. He is slated to make his Broadway directorial debut this spring with Brian Hargrove and Barbara Anselmi's new musical, "It Shoulda Been You."

"We couldn't be more thrilled and flattered that David's making THE GOOD WIFE his first TV role since 'Frasier,'" said Executive Producers/Showrunners Robert and Michelle King. "We're tremendous fans of his dramatic skills as well as his comedy."

THE GOOD WIFE returns for its sixth season Sunday, Sept. 21 (9:30-10:30 PM, ET, 9:00-10:00 PM, PT), on the CBS Television Network.

THE GOOD WIFE stars Julianna Margulies, Christine Baranski, Matt Czuchry, Archie Panjabi, Makenzie Vega, Alan Cumming, Matthew Goode and Zach Grenier. It is produced by Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions in association with CBS Television Studios. Ridley Scott, Robert King, Michelle King, Brooke Kennedy, David W. Zucker, Ted Humphrey, Keith Eisner, Leonard Dick and Craig Turk are executive producers.
