Seems like Taye Diggs will be putting down his guns and taking a break from chasing the bad guys. E! News is reporting that the current star of the hit TNT series Murder in the First has booked a multiple episode arc on The Good Wife.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have Taye on the show,” Robert and Michelle King, executive producers and showrunners of The Good Wife, said in a statement. “We’ve been huge fans for years, and love his ability to play comedy and drama with equal ease.”
Diggs will play Dean Levine-Wilkins, a meticulous and talented equity partner at Lockhart/Gardner who decides to throw in his lot with Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) and accompany her to Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Cary’s (Matt Czuchry) company, Florrick/Agos.
The Good Wife returns on Sunday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. on CBS for its season six premiere.
