According to Entertainment Weekly, Perry will play “an attorney from Chicago named Mike who’s heading up a blue ribbon panel who’s in charge of investigating a police shooting. While Mike is described as ultra charming, he won’t have an easy time winning over Alicia Florick (Julianna Marguiles), who thinks his interest is more political than truth seeking.”
It has not yet been confirmed how many episodes Perry will appear in.
Perry seems to be the only Friends cast member who has not been typecast in comedic roles. Since Friends ended in 2004, he has had roles in Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and, more recently, Mr Sunshine. During Friends he even appeared in several episodes of The West Wing.
Perry will make his first appearance on The Good Wife, on US screens, on 25 March.
