In a press release, Friday, August 20, CBS announced that five-time Emmy winner is going to pay a visit to ' acclaimed drama "". He has been cast to play a "shrewd and cynical litigator" who will face Margulies' Alicia in a class-action suit.

"We're absolutely thrilled that Michael has agreed to play this role," said executive producers and show creators Robert and Michelle King. "His intelligence as an actor, combined with his incredible comic timing will really bring this smart, cynical lawyer to life."
