Nestor Carbonell is reporting for wife duty…
The 46-year-old Cuban/Spanish American actor will guest-star on CBS’ The Good Wife.
Carbonell will portray a charming entrepreneur who catches Alicia Florrick’s eye, according to CBS.
In the episode, set to air on May 4, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) has a chance encounter with Carbonell’s character, Daniel Irwin, during jury duty, which makes her begin to consider her options outside of her marriage. Alicia will ask for guidance from none other than her mother, Veronica (Stockard Channing), who knows a thing or two about playing the field.
In the wake of Will’s death — and Peter’s not exactly compassionate response — Alicia told her husband that they would stay together for their careers, but that he was free to date whomever he wanted.
Carbonell’s previous television credits include appearances on Lost, Psych, Ringer, Wilfredand Person of Interest. He currently stars on Bates Motel.
The Good Wife airs Sundays at 9/8c on CBS.
