bill maher getty 'The Good Wife' Season 4: Bill Maher to cameo as himself“The Good Wife” just keeps adding intriguing stars to its roster of guest-stars or recurring characters for the upcoming fourth season. Wednesday (Sept. 12) CBS tweeted that comedian/commentator Bill Maher will appear.

“The Good Wife will get some real time with Bill Maher…he’s been cast
to appear as himself in a cameo role of an episode this fall,” says the network.

We would have to imagine Maher’s guest-starring role will have something to do with Peter Florrick’s gubernatorial campaign, rather than a case-of-the-week scenario, which should prove interesting. Do you think he’s a Florrick supporter or Florrick critic?

Maher joins the laundry list of guest stars that includes Brian Dennehy, Christina Ricci, Miriam Shor, Nathan Lane, Marc Warren and Maura Tierney. It’s shaping up to be a great season, which will premiere Sunday, Sept. 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
