*Michael Ealy has reportedly signed on to join Julianna Margulies in CBS’ “The Good Wife.”
Last seen on ABC’s cancelled “FlashForward,” the actor will play Derrick Bond, the head of the D.C. firm that’s merging with Will and Diane’s struggling practice.
According to Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello, Derrick’s character is described as a “casual, soft-spoken attorney whose egalitarian beliefs seem at odds with Will and Diane’s self-serving practices. However, under his pleasant and unassuming exterior, he has a steel-trap mind and can outmaneuver his most cunning adversaries and/or associates. Deeply impressed with Alicia’s quiet competence, he becomes her newest mentor.”
Ealy is due to star in at least 10 episodes of “The Good Wife’s” forthcoming second season.
