The Good Wife has added Taye Diggs to the cast for the CBS procedural drama’s upcoming sixth season.

Taye Diggs Joins 'Good Wife'

Diggs won’t be joining The Good Wife as a series regular, but will appear as a recurring guest star. He’ll play the “meticulous and “talented” Dean Levine-Wilkins, an equity partner and Lockhart/Gardner and Canning that seeks greener pastures at Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Cary’s (Matt Czuckry) firm, Florrick/Agos – where Diane (Christine Baranski) has already joined the ranks.

"We couldn't be more excited to have Taye on the show," Robert and Michelle King, executive producers and showrunners of The Good Wife, said in a statement. "We've been huge fans for years, and love his ability to play comedy and drama with equal ease."

Diggs currently stars on TNT’s Murder in the First. Previously, the actor was a regular on Private Practice, Kevin Hill and Day Break. On the big screen, Diggs recently starred in The Best Man Holiday, which is already rumored to have a sequel in the works.

The Good Wife will premiere its sixth season on CBS Sunday, Sept. 21 at 9/8c.
