Matthew Morrison knows firsthand the perils of joining the Good Wife cast after seven seasons as a self-described “superfan.”

“My biggest problem was trying to remember everyone’s real name,” he explains, with a chuckle. “Every time I went to talk to Julianna [Margulies], I wanted to say ‘Alicia.’”

The actor’s work as Assistant U.S. Attorney Connor Fox, however, is no laughing matter — not as he convenes a grand jury to pursue charges against Chris Noth’s Gov. Peter Florrick starting with this Sunday’s episode (9/8c on CBS).

“I think he’s a good guy. He’s a tough guy. He doesn’t take a bribe,” says Morrison, when asked to describe his character. “He’s passionate about the law, and he’s taken down a few governors in the past. Peter’s been a bad boy in the past — we all know that — and now there are some repercussions.”

Morrison promises that Sunday’s installment will definitely spell out the nature of Peter’s transgressions — but just because Connor is on the right side of the law doesn’t mean he’s expecting longtime Good Wife fans to side with the prosecutor.

“These characters are so beloved — and I’m definitely stirring the pot. I’m sure there’ll be a backlash, but that’s OK,” he says. “It’s a fun part to play. I don’t usually get to play what I guess you would call the villain — even though he does believe he’s doing good.”

 

To Morrison’s surprise, showrunners Robert and Michelle King told him there were no political motivations to Connor’s character — which is one of the reasons Morrison fashioned him after a real-life U.S. Attorney, Patrick Fitzgerald, who brought down Illinois Governors Rod Blagojevich and George Ryan.

That said, Morrison’s initial episodes will mainly feature him going toe-to-toe with Alan Cumming’s Eli Gold (aka Peter’s campaign guru); he’s only begun filming with Noth this week. “Connor doesn’t really go along with Eli’s bullishness and his craziness. I just laugh it off a little,” the actor teases.

Asked about a promo photo released by CBS — and whether we’re to assume Eli and Alicia are eavesdropping on Connor through a courtroom bathroom vent — Morrison responds with a hearty chuckle. “If you think that, you should go buy a lottery ticket now,” he says. “You have good intuition!”

That scene in particular underscores how “other people will try to out-maneuever Connor,” Morrison says, adding that in the scripts he’s seen, there haven’t been any core characters or ghosts of Good Wife past who’ve turned against the Governor. “None of the main tribe joins Connor’s corner,” he says, laughing. “But there are some extras on the show that I’m really friendly with!”

And while Morrison adds that he hasn’t seen any sign of his “pretty badass” character having an Achilles’ heel, there’s still time for him to stumble. While hisGood Wife gig was initially slated to last four episodes, “it looks like I’m going to be around through the very end,” Morrison shares. “They asked about [availability] for [shooting] the final episode.”

A hipster-turned-farmer named Sebastian (Glee‘s Matthew Morrison) gives Liza a taste of the simple life — while offering a welcome reprieve from last week’s Josh drama — on Wednesday’s Younger (TV Land, 10/9c).

TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek finds Liza trekking up to Sebastian’s farm — they first meet at a flea market in Brooklyn, naturally — with the goal of wooing him over to Empirical. And like so many business dealings on Younger, the wooing may soon become mutual.

Matthew Morrison is here to (potentially) ruin everything for the Florricks. The Gleestar joins The Good Wife on Sunday, March 6 in the new role of Assistant US Attorney Connor Fox and he’s got his sights set on taking down Peter Florrick (Chris Noth). AUSA Connor Fox is leading the grand jury proceedings against the governor, so he’s sure going to make things difficult for Peter, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Eli (Alan Cumming).

Morrison makes his debut in “Hearing.” Check out the exclusive first photo above. “I’m ecstatic to be playing a role on my favorite show on TV,” he tweeted after his role was announced in January.

In the episode, Alicia, Eli and Peter’s lawyer Mike Tascioni (Will Patton), the ex-husband of Elsbeth Tascioni (Carrie Preston), attempt to discover what charges are being leveled against Peter. Viewers know it has something to do with one of his donors, possibly, but likely not his vote rigging for Alicia. Meanwhile, Alicia attempt to have a quiet weekend with Jason (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), but her mom and brother make things very difficult. Stockard Channing returns as Veronica andDallas Roberts as Owen. Margo Martindale returns as Ruth Eastman and John Magaro is back as FBI agent Roland Hlavin.
