As previously reported, Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth will also join the series for a recurring role in the upcoming fourth season, which is scheduled to begin in September.

"Chenoweth will match wits with both Alicia [played by Julianna Margulies] and Peter [played by Chris Noth] in her role as a top-of-her-game political reporter who wants to know more about the Florrick campaign and marriage," according to CBS. Lane will play "a bean-counter assigned by the bank to trim the fat at Lockhart & Gardner." The series shoots in New York City.

Lane is a two-time Tony Award winner for his performances in The Producers and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. He was nominated for his performance in Guys and Dolls and has also been seen on Broadway in The Addams Family, Waiting for Godot, November, Butley, The Odd Couple and The Frogs, among others.
