More good news for “The Good Wife.” Season 4 is going to be flush with famous guest stars.

Emmy and Tony Award winner Nathan Lane has been tapped for a recurring role on the upcoming season, CBS announced Wednesday. Look for him to debut in the September season premiere.

Lane will play “a bottom line-obsessed manager imposed on Lockhart & Gardner by the bank to cut costs and get the firm back to fiscal health,” according to the release, who “finds himself at odds with Will, Diane and everyone else at the firm.”

The news comes a day after it was revealed Kristin Chenoweth (last seen in ABC’s axed “GCB”) will also be guest starring in multiple episodes this season as a top political journalist.

Lane and Chenoweth join the growing list of big names signing on for Season 4 of the Julianna Margulies drama; on Monday, it was announced former “ER” star Maura Tierney is on board for a recurring role, while British actor Marc Warren has been cast as Kalinda’s manipulative ex-husband.
