Julianna Margulies is in talks to star in an independent drama opposite Richard Gere and Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage.
A rep for the three-time Emmy winner confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that The Good Wife star is set to join the cast of Three Christs.
Set in 1959, the story follows a doctor (played by Gere) who is treating three paranoid schizophrenic patients at the Ypsilanti State Hospital in Michigan, each of whom believe they are Jesus Christ.
Margulies will be playing the wife and former research assistant to Gere's character, Doctor Milton Rokeach.
According to Deadline: "While supportive of her husband, she’s cooped up with two young daughters and resentful of his long hours and of his young attractive female assistant. She is not above using her charms — and the occasional provocative sexual encounter — to be sure she continues to keep his attention."
Based on a true story, it also stars Walton Goggins (Sons of Anarchy) and Bradley Whitford (The West Wing).
Margulies won two Emmys and two SAG Awards for her role as Alicia Florrick in the CBS series The Good Wife, which aired its last episode last month. S
he also won an Emmy for her role as Carol Hathaway on ER, appearing on the show’s first six seasons.
