jason o mara the good wife season 5 'The Good Wife' Season 5 adds Jason O'Mara as ...“The Good Wife” is known for its cavalcade of guest stars every season and Season 5 is shaping up to be no exception. In addition to Melissa George, Michael Rappaport and the return of John Noble to Lockhart/Gardner, Deadline reports that the show has booked Jason O’Mara (“Terra Nova,” “Vegas”).

O’Mara will get to use his real-life accent as he plays a “wild-eyed Irish attorney” who defends organized crime families and gang members. But he’s decided he’d like to go corporate — will he fit in at Lockhart/Gardner?

With the mention of “gang members” and whatnot, we wonder if he’ll have anything to do with Lemond Bishop, the recurring client of Alicia’s who has one foot firmly on the right side of the law and the other foot firmly on the other side.

“The Good Wife” returns Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
