Lisa Edelstein joins The Good Wife for a multi-episode arc.

House, M.D.‘s Lisa Edelstein Visiting The Good Wife

It did not take very long for Lisa Edelstein to score a juicy new role after deciding not to sign on to another season of the FOX medical series House, M.D. Michael Aussielo reports in TV|Line that Lisa Edelstein will appear next season on The Good Wife.

According to Ausiello, she will play a sexy, smart lawyer and  “born poker player” during a multi-episode story arc early in the season. Starring Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife follows the life of attorney Alicia Florrick, a wife and mother forced to re-enter the working world after a sex and political corruption scandal lands her husband in jail.

Edelstein’s role is rumored to have had a past with Will Gardner (Josh Charles), Alicia’s old law school classmate and a partner in her firm. Although she will be missed on the Fox series starring Hugh Laurie, this is great news for Edelstein’s many fans. The Good Wife airs on CBS Tuesdays at 10 PM ET, but is moving to Sunday evenings in the fall. 

So what do you think about it? Good move for Edelstein? Will it turn into something more permanent for her?
