TVLine.com is reporting that the actress has signed on to do a multi-episode arc on “The Good Wife” next season. She’ll play a lawyer/poker player who has some sort of past history with Will (Josh Charles). There’s no more word on what the part is or how long she’ll be playing it, but it will be Edelstein’s first series role since departing from her role as Dr. Cuddy on “House” after she and producers couldn’t come to terms on a new contract.
