As the networks continue to ramp up for the Fall 2012 TV season, more casting news is breaking from Hollywood. Right on the heels of the announcement that Maura Tierney was joining The Good Wife on a recurring basis as a self-made millionaire with powerful influences in the political world comes the news that petite blonde powerhouse Kristin Chenoweth is also joining the legal drama.
Fresh off the controversial series, GCB, the spirited Chenoweth will also be a recurring performer. Her character is slated to be a journalist dedicated to revealing all, both politically and personally. This means trying to get the scoop on Peter and Alicia Florrick's supposedly secret separation. The name of Chenoweth's character was not given.
Meanwhile, the Criminal Minds family is finally fully set for the new season, thanks to the signing of Matthew Gray Gubler to a two-year contract. The various cast members are on different years of their ABC contracts with the intensive drama show. Gubler was the last of those needing a new contract to finalize the deal. On the show, he plays the genius analyst, Dr. Spencer Reid. He also directed the season ender last year. There is no word on whether or not he will be directing more shows in the 2012-2013 season.
