Stockard Channing On 'The Good Wife' Thanksgiving In 'A Defense Of Marriage' (PHOTOS)

Stockard Channing is coming to dinner on "The Good Wife."

The "West Wing" and "Grease" veteran will play Veronica, Alicia's (Julianna Margulies) mom. Veronica comes to town for Thanksgiving and in true "Good Wife" fashion, drama isn't far behind. Other guest stars include Dallas Roberts as Alicia's brother Owen, Bebe Neuwirth as Judge Friend and Brian Dennehy as Bucky Stabler.

Here's how CBS describes the episode, "A Defense of Marriage":

Alicia and Diane agree to let a famous liberal lawyer aid them on their latest case, but they soon realize he may not have their client’s best interests in mind. Meanwhile, Alicia’s mother arrives for Thanksgiving seeking moral and legal support from Alicia and her brother Owen, on "The Good Wife," Sunday, Nov. 25 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Academy Award nominee Stockard Channing guest stars as Alicia’s mother and Bruce McGill guest stars as liberal crusader Jeremy Breslow. Brian Dennehy returns as lawyer Bucky Stabler and Bebe Neuwirth returns as Judge Friend.
