Vanessa Williams is Joining “The Good Wife”


Actress Vanessa Williams is  joining The Good Wife in a recurring role for season 7.

Ms. Vanessa will play Courtney Boalt, “an extremely successful, self-made businesswoman, who is potentially interested in backing Peter Florrick’s (Chris Noth) campaign for president. In the process, she meets Eli Gold (Alan Cumming), sparking a mutual attraction,” reads an ABC release.

“There are very few names you can put side-by-side that make you laugh,” said executive producers Robert and Michelle King in a statement. “Alan Cumming and Vanessa Williams are at the top of that list. We couldn’t be more excited.”



The Good Wife returns Sunday, Oct. 4.
