Vanessa Williams will join the critically acclaimed drama “The Good Wife” in a recurring role this November. Williams will play Courtney Boalt, an extremely successful, self-made businesswoman who is potentially interested in backing Peter Florrick’s (Chris Noth) campaign for President. In the process, she meets Eli Gold (Alan Cumming), sparking a mutual attraction.
“There are very few names you can put side-by-side that make you laugh,” said Executive Producers Robert and Michelle King. “Alan Cumming and Vanessa Williams are at the top of that list. We couldn’t be more excited.”

The series stars Julianna Margulies, Christine Baranski, Matt Czuchry, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Alan Cumming, Zach Grenier and Cush Jumbo.
It is produced by Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions in association with CBS Television Studios.
