As reported last week, Matthew Perry will soon reprise the role he originated on The Good Wife TV series. The Odd Couple star is bringing back sociopathic attorney Mike Kresteva to The Good Fight TV show on CBS All Access. The spin-off series stars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Erica Tazel, Sarah Steele, and Justin Bartha.
Now we know what brings the lying lawyer back on the scene. Bartha told TV Guide that Mike returns to investigate Lucca’s new law firm, which handles a lot of police brutality cases. After the jump, watch Perry (with The Kennedys — After Camelot co-star Katie Holmes), discuss his role on The Good Fight.
Matthew Perry to Guest Star in The Good Fight TV Show on CBS All Access
According tot he Friends veteran, he will appear in three upcoming episodes of the new CBS All Access drama series. Perry says, “He’s a really fun character to play because he just lies all the time. You know he’s lying. The audience knows he’s lying. He knows he’s lying. He doesn’t care. So it’s a really fun bad guy to play.”
In addition to Perry, Rita Wilson, Denis O’Hare, John Benjamin Hickey, Jane Alexander, and Michael Boatman will appear in The Good Fight season one, as their original Good Wife characters.
