Matthew Perry has scored a recurring role on the CBS drama “The Good Wife,” playing “an extremely charming Chicago attorney” with possible shady motives.
The former “Friends” star’s guest run will begin on March 25.
Perry’s character, Mike, is “tasked with heading up a blue-ribbon panel that’s investigating a suspicious police shooting.” Series star Julianna Margulies‘ character, Alicia, “begins to question the actions he is taking as the chairman” after being assigned to the panel.
Perry’s most recent regular TV gigs were the short-lived ABC sitcom “Mr. Sunshine,” which ran from February to April 2011, and the Aaron Sorkin-penned “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” which ran from September 2006 to June 2007.
