Jonathan Groff, who will return to the Fox hit "Glee" this season, will also be seen on CBS' "The Good Wife" later this month.

TVLine.com reports that the Spring Awakening star will appear in this season's 15th episode. He will play a plaintiff named Jimmy, who is "suing a software company after his sister disappears during a peaceful protest in Syria."

"The Good Wife" stars Emmy Award winner Julianna Margulies ("ER," Festen) as a wife and mother who assumes full responsibility for her family and re-enters the workforce after her husband's very public sex and political corruption scandal lands him in jail. According to CBS, "Pushing aside the betrayal and crushing public humiliation caused by her husband, Peter, Alicia Florrick starts over by pursuing her original career as a defense attorney."

Jonathan Groff received a Tony nomination as well as a Theatre World Award for his performance in Broadway's Spring Awakening. His Off-Broadway credits include Spring Awakening, Hair, The Bacchae, Prayer for My Enemy and The Singing Forest. He was also seen in the West End in the revival of Deathtrap. Groff's screen credits include "Taking Woodstock," "The Conspirator," "Twelve Thirty," "Glee," "One Life to Live" and "Pretty/Handsome."

"The Good Wife" airs Sundays at 9 PM ET on CBS.
