Frasier alum David Hyde Pierce has landed a recurring role on The Good Wife.

The Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor will play a highly respected cable news legal commentator who is so disgusted by the corruption and murder rate in Chicago that he decides to run for office.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled and flattered that David’s making The Good Wife his first TV role since Frasier,” showrunners Robert and Michelle King said in a statement. “We’re tremendous fans of his dramatic skills as well as his comedy.”

The Good Wife returns Sept. 21 at 9:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
