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.
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 judgements 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.
