March 6 (UPI) — Emmy-winning actor Mandy Patinkin has joined the ensemble of the Paramount+ legal drama “The Good Fight.”

“We are thrilled to welcome @PatinkinMandy to the cast of #TheGoodFight Season 5! Coming soon on Paramount+,” the show’s Twitter feed said Friday.

The cast includes Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, John Larroquette, Delroy Lindo and Audra McDonald.

“Homeland” and “Chicago Hope” alum Patinkin will play Hal Wackner, “a layman with no legal training who spontaneously decides to open a court in the back of a copy shop,” according to a Friday press release.

“Against all odds, the court catches on, and the team at Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart find themselves contending with judgments that mean nothing legally, but are honored by much of the entertained public.

Robert and Michelle King are co-creators, show-runners and executive producers on the “The Good Fight,” a spinoff of “The Good Wife,” which aired on CBS 2009-16.
