Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan will join the drama “The Good Wife” as a series regular during the show’s upcoming seventh season. Morgan will play Alex, a calm, experienced hourly investigator whom Alicia hires alongside series stars Julianna Margulies, Christine Baranski, Matt Czuchry, Alan Cumming and Zach Grenier. We’ve loved and admired Jeffrey Dean Morgan for years, and we were thrilled to hear that Julianna did too, so it was a no-brainer to ask him to join our troupe,” said executive producers Robert and Michelle King.
Currently, Morgan stars in the CBS summer drama “Extant.” He also starred in “Weeds,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Watchman” and “P.S. I Love You.” The seventh season of “The Good Wife” premieres Sunday, Oct. 4 at 9:00PM, ET/PT on the CBS Television Network.
