Alan Cumming To Continue On CBS' 'The Good Wife' As Regular With 3-Year Deal
By NELLIE ANDREEVA | Monday April 18, 2011 @ 3:13pm PDT

EXCLUSIVE: At the end of last week's episode of CBS' The Good Wife, which culminated with Peter Florrick's victory in the District Attorney election, DCC chairman Frank Landau revealed that heís already plotting Peterís campaign for Senate, and that Florrick's trusted strategist Eli Gold will be running that, too. Well, that could now become a reality because, after several weeks of negotiations, Alan Cumming, who plays Gold on the show, has signed a deal to continue as a regular for three more seasons. The Good Wife is yet to be renewed for Season 3 but, given the acclaim for the show, that is considered a done deal.

Cumming joined The Good Wife as a recurring in the first season and was upped to a regular for the current second season. Cumming's character of cutthroat political operative Eli Gold, which some have suggested resembles former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, was an immediate standout when he was first introduced in Episode 15 last season. CAA-repped Cumming earned a guest-starring Emmy nomination last year and is a strong contender for a supporting drama actor nom this year. Going back to the most recent pivotal episode of The Good Wife, in which Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) wowed Gold with her TV interview that essentially won the election for her husband, yes, Gold will be back next season, but which Florrick he would be running a campaign for is TBD.
