Hot on the heels of the news that Kristin Chenoweth is joining the cast of CBS' hit drama, The Good Wife, news broke Wednesday morning that another Broadway star is going to join her in a recurring role -- Nathan Lane.

Emmy and Tony award-winning Lane will make his 'Wife' debut in the season premiere, and will plan a "bottom-line obsessed manager" who will face off with Will, Diane and others at Lockhart/Gardner in an attempt to get the firm back on the road to financial health.
