A veteran actress of the big screen just scored a picture-perfect role on The Good Wife.

EW has learned exclusively that Amy Irving (Carrie, Crossing Delancey) will play an iconic photographer looking to defend her early photographs in the seventh season.

Set to appear in the Oct. 11 episode, Irving’s character has been described as a striking, bohemian-looking woman who is a celebrated photographer. She goes in front of a judge to argue on behalf of her work, while clearly placing more importance on her pending retrospective than on what it means to her family.

Irving joins an impressive lineup of stars who are already set to return to the CBS drama. The drama has already recruited Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Extant) to play play Alex, a “calm, experienced hourly investigator” whom Alicia (Julianna Margulies) hires.

The show also cast Broadway sensation Cush Jumbo in a recurring role as a lawyer and Margo Martindale as Will Eastman, a campaign operative. 

And we saved the best news for last: Michael J. Fox will return to reprise his role as Louis Canning.

The Good Wife returns Oct. 4.
