Jennifer Carpenter from Dexter is going to be on The Good Wife for a two episode guest stint.
In a 180-degree turn from Deb Morgan in Dexter, Carpenter will guest-star as a soft-spoken university professor who is fired due to her conservative religious and political beliefs. Alicia and Caitlin (Anna Camp) represent the professor in a suit against Louis Canning (Emmy nominee Michael J. Fox) and his firm.
Robert and Michelle King, the creators of the drama, say of the casting, “We loved Jennifer in Dexter and we were especially thrilled to see her play such a different role: a committed believer who doesn’t swear once.”
The Good Wife will return to Channel Ten in 2012.
