brian dennehy denis ohare julianna margulies good wife 'Good Wife' Season 4 adds Brian Dennehy, Christina Ricci and moreThe guest stars on “The Good Wife” are just one of the excellent reasons to tune in every week. The show has brought in some heavy hitters as both recurring characters and as the case-of-the-week clients/lawyers/judges.

In addition to Season 4 recurring guest stars Maura Tierney, Marc Warren and Nathan Lane, fans can now also look for Miriam Shor, Brian Dennehy and Christina Ricci.

Dennehy’s guest-starring role is unknown so far — his stint on the show was broken by Denis O’Hare on Twitter, a frequent guest star on “Good Wife” as a liberal judge.

TV Line is reporting that “GCB” alum Miriam Shor will play a national news reporter who resents having to cover local politics in Chicago. She isn’t exactly replacing fellow “GCB” star Kristin Chenoweth, who had to bow out of her guest-starring arc after an on-set injury, but we would imagine she’s ostensibly filling the political reporter void.

And CBS has announced that Christina Ricci will guest star as a shocking comedian who needs the help of Alicia Florrick in a case-of-the-week situation.
