Miranda Cosgrove Lands Edgy ‘Good Wife’ Role

By: Celebuzz / September 22, 2010

Miranda Cosgrove is about to seriously put her acting chops to the test.

EW.com reports that the iCarly star will be putting in a guest-starring appearance on the CBS legal drama The Good Wife—and the part will be a far cry from her usual fare.

On the show, the 17-year-olf Cosgrove will play Sloan, a pop starlet who’s arrested on a DUI charge and ends up being represented by attorney Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) during a paparazzi-packed trial. (Sound familiar?)

Good Wife executive producer Robert King says of the upcoming collaboration,

“We’re big iCarly fans, so we really couldn’t think of anyone better for this role than Miranda Cosgrove. We were thrilled when she agreed to do it. It’ll be fun to see her handle both the comedy and drama in the role, and we can’t wait to see how she’ll play across from Julianna.”

Cosgrove will appear on the show’s November 16 episode. How do you think she’ll do? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
