In the fourth season, he comes to King's Landing with revenge on his mind.

Melissa George (Hunted, Grey's Anatomy) has booked a recurring role on the upcoming fifth season of CBS' The Good Wife. She will play Marilyn, Governor Peter Florrick's (Chris Noth) new in-house ethics counsel. She is described as smart, sexy, savvy and a stickler for honesty and observing the rules.

Also joining the cast of The Good Wife in a recurring role is English actress Juliet Rylance (Sinister). She will play Holly, a whip-smart Assistant State's Attorney who shares a past with Kalinda (Archie Panjabi).

Jessica Collins (Rubicon, The Nine) will appear in at least four episodes of the second season of NBC's Revolution. She wil play Cynthia, a beautiful young woman of deep faith, whose winning humor and blazing intelligence capture the heart of one the show's leading characters.

NBC has decided to keep comedy pilot Assistance in series contention with an additional order for three more scripts. Producing studio Universal TV has also extended the contract options on series stars Krysten Ritter and Alfred Molina. The project centers on Nora (Ritter), an idealistic assistant who attempts to find balance in her life while juggling the demands of a larger-than-life boss (Molina), her "work-husband" colleague and her real life fiancé.
