Matthew Perry is headed back to "The Good Wife." According to Deadline.com, Perry will guest star on a 2013 episode of the hit CBS series, once again playing Mike Kresteva, a candidate for governor running against Peter Florrick (Chris Noth). As Perry himself noted in interviews, Kresteva is an "all-out bad guy."

That Perry is returning to "The Good Wife" at all is a bit of a coup. He appeared in two episodes at the end of last season, but further plans for Kresteva were shelved when "Go On," the NBC comedy pilot that Perry starred in, was picked up by the rival network. "Go On" has since become one of NBC's bright spots this fall and was recently picked up for a full season.

As the actor told Zap2it.com in August, the original plan was for Kresteva to appear in "nine or 10 episodes."

"I wish I could do both shows, but you just can't," Perry said in August. "So far, the two episodes they've given me are some of the best writing I've encountered."
