Michael Sheen (Frost/Nixon, Masters Of Sex) has joined the cast of CBS All Access' The Good Wife spin-off The Good Fight for its upcoming third season, which is currently filming ahead of an early 2019 premiere. The series airs on this side of the pond on the Channel 4 owned digi-net More4. Sheen will play Roland Blum, 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.
