Emmy and Tony winner David Hyde Pierce (Frasier, Curtains) has been cast in a recurring role on the upcoming sixth season of CBSThe Good Wife. Pierce will play a highly respected cable news legal commentator who is so disgusted by the corruption and murder rate in Chicago that he decides to run for office in order to effect change. Pierce earned four Emmy awards for his role as Dr. Niles Crane in Frasier. His feature credits include Little Man Tate, Sleepless In Seattle, Nixon, Full Frontal and A Bug’s Life and Wet Hot American Summer. He is slated to make his Broadway directorial debut this spring with Brian Hargrove and Barbara Anselmi’s new musical It Shoulda Been You.
