Maura Tierney to the Good Wife this Season

Emmy Award-nominated actress Maura Tierney (“ER,” “Rescue Me”) and British actor Marc Warren (“Hustle,” “Mad Dog”) have both been cast in recurring roles in season four of THE GOOD WIFE. Both actors will appear in the season premiere in September.

Warren will play Kalinda’s (Archie Panjabi) manipulative ex-husband, to whom she has an attraction that she finds impossible to ignore.

Tierney will play a self-made millionaire who has become the doyenne of Chicago Democratic politics.  She is best known for her roles on ER and Rescue Me and had to bow out of the Lauren Graham role in NBC's Parenthood when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009.  She finished treatment in 2010.

Warren is best known for his role in the BBC-TV series Hustle playing the main character, Danny Blue.  He also appeared in HBO's Band of Brothers.

THE GOOD WIFE, which stars Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Julianna Margulies,  received nine 2011 Primetime Emmy nominations, the most for a broadcast network series.  It has won or been nominated for multiple awards, including the Peabody Awards, the Golden Globe Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the People’s Choice Awards.
