Actor Taye Diggs is guest starring in the upcoming season, The Good Wife. Reports say that he will be guest-starring in multiple episodes during the CBS show’s sixth season.
Diggs’ character will be Dean Levine Wilkins. This character is described as meticulous and talented equity partner at Lockhart/Gardner. Wilkins will then decide to join Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) at Floorick/ Argos firm run by Alicia Floorick (Julianna Margulies).
If you haven’t seen this exciting show, The Good Wife is about a woman named Alicia Floorick (Margulies) who returns back to work as an attorney after years of being a stay-at-home mom, due to her cheating politician husband (Chris Noth). Alicia progresses through the show becoming a stronger character, eventually starting her own firm and divorces her unfaithful husband last season.
While the TV series has been blessed by the participation of some of the most talented actors (Matthew Perry, Martha Plimpton, Nathan Lane, Michael J Fox, Carrie Preston, and even Stockard Channing) Taye Diggs could not have come at a better time to the show than right now. Audiences are still grieving over the death of Will Gardner. After five great seasons, Will Gardner (played by actor Josh Charles) was killed in a courthouse shootout that ended up contributing a crazy twist to the show.
Robert and Michelle King, executive producers and showrunners of The Good Wife, are ecstatic to add the talented actor Diggs to the show.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have Taye on the show,” the two stated. “We’ve been huge fans for years, and love his ability to play comedy and drama with equal ease.”
