john noble the good wife 'The Good Wife': John Noble guest starring as an old client of Alicia'sTwo great fandoms are colliding. John Noble, whose work on “Fringe” was tragically overlooked by an award of any kind, is coming to “The Good Wife.” And in a delightful detail, he’s featured in time-jumping flashbacks.

“He comes on as a man that I have flashbacks [about], because he’s a client that I used to take care of all the time,” star Julianna Margulies tells TV Guide Canada. “He’s a very interesting character who is sort of a brilliant techie guy that constantly sues people.”

It sounds Noble’s acting chops have not faltered since “Fringe” wrapped filming.

“He just elevated the part to such a different level,” says Margulies. “It was remarkable to work with him and just a pleasure to have on set. On the page, I thought, ‘Is this going to make sense?’ and he filled it with such incredible talent. I can’t even tell you. I looked at him and I went, ‘I didn’t even know that was the character.’ I’m so blown away.”

We’re very excited to see the episode. “The Good Wife” airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
