Weeds alum Hunter Parrish will also appear on an upcoming episode of The Good Wife. He will play Jeffrey Grant, an enthusiastic college student looking to experience everything life has to offer, until he's caught in a Kaska-esque DNA trip, accused of murdering a female classmate he swears he's never met.

Brothers & Sisters vet Luke MacFarlane will appear on NBC's midseason drama series The Night Shift. He will play Rick Lincoln, a soldier who just got back from Afghanistan and arrives at San Antonio Memorial Hospital. He also has a close connection to Drew (Brendan Fehr).
