Steven Pasquale Lands Role on The Good Wife
Broadway vet Steven Pasquale will guest star on The Good Wife, opposite Tony winner Alan Cumming. According to Deadline, Pasquale will appear in two episodes playing a top campaign manager called Elfman, who is being wooed by Eli Gold (Cumming) to run Alicia’s (Julianna Margulies) potential campaign. As previously reported, The Bridges of Madison County star will also soon be seen in an untitled Netflix drama alongside Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz. We still wish Pasquale was playing eight shows a week on the Great White Way, but this will have to do for now.

Tom Stoppard has finally revealed that his first new play since Rock’n’Roll in 2006 will be called The Hard Problem. The show is set to begin performances in January 2015 at the U.K.’s National Theatre, directed by Nicholas Hynter. “It’s a bit premature to say much about it, to be honest,” the Tony-winning playwright told the Daily Mail, “but it’s not about erectile dysfunction, anyway.”
