Michael Sheen Joins ‘The Good Fight’ Season 3

“Masters of Sex” alum to play a “brilliant, charismatic and Machiavellian lawyer” on the CBS All Access drama

“Masters of Sex” alum Michael Sheen will join the next season of “The Good Fight” on CBS All Access, the network announced on Wednesday.

Sheen will appear on the legal drama’s upcoming third season, playing Roland Blum, who is described as “a brilliant, charismatic and Machiavellian lawyer. He is a man of appetites – drugs, sex, you name it – who’s far more interested in winning than the niceties of following the law.”

He joins series stars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Audra McDonald, Sarah Steele, Michael Boatman, Nyambi Nyambi and Delroy Lindo.

The drama will continue its topical approach next season as Diane Lockhart (Baranski) tries to figure out whether you can resist a crazy administration without going crazy yourself, and Adrian Boseman (Lindo) and Liz Reddick-Lawrence (McDonald) struggle with a new post-factual world where the lawyer who tells the best story triumphs over the lawyer with the best facts.

Meanwhile, Lucca Quinn (Jumbo) balances a new baby with a new love, and Maia Rindell (Leslie) finds a new Mephistopheles in Roland Blum (Sheen), a Roy Cohn-like lawyer who is corruption incarnate.

Robert and Michelle King continue to as showrunners and executive producers of the series, which they co-created with Phil Alden Robinson. Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Liz Glotzer, Brooke Kennedy and William Finkelstein also serve as executive producers.
