The showrunners of The Good Wife have cast two new roles for the upcoming fifth season.

Gloves Come Off

First up, we’ll meet a new love interest for Archie Panjabi‘s character, Kalinda Sharma. TV Line has learned that actress Juliet Rylance (Sinister) has been given the role.

Rylance will play the recurring role of Holly, a whip-smart Assistant State’s Attorney who shares a past with Kalinda.



Secondly, the legal drama will be adding a tempting character for Peter Florrick (played by Chris Noth).

Actress Melissa George, who credits include Grey’s Anatomy, has been tapped for a recurring role. She will be introduced as Marilyn, a newly-elected Governor Florrick’s in-house ethics counsel.
