Matthew Perry to Play Lawyer on 'The Good Wife'


Matthew Perry


It was announced that the 'Friends' star is tackling the role of an attorney in a case about suspicious police shooting.

Matthew Perry will return to TV screens for the first time since comedy series "Mr. Sunshine" that he fronted was canceled by ABC last year. The former "Friends" star has been cast for a recurring role on CBS' legal drama "The Good Wife".

Playing Mike, Perry will portray an "extremely charming Chicago attorney tasked with heading up a blue-ribbon panel that's investigating a suspicious police shooting". When Alicia (Julianna Margulies) is assigned to be on the panel, she begins to question the actions he is taking as the chairman.

His first episode airs Sunday, March 25 at 9 P.M. ET/PT. The press release did not mention the number of episodes that he will appear in.

A few days ago, it was announced that Perry joined the cast of indie movie "The Whole Banana". He is slated to play one of the men in Kristy Swanson's life. Shooting for the romantic comedy starts this month with Stephen Wallis as the director.
