New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio is going to make a cameo on an upcoming episode of The Good Wife, according to the New York Post. CBS and de Blasio wouldn't elaborate on the nature of his role, other than he'll be playing himself while Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) "seeks inspiration for a keynote address." That's not a lot to go on (maybe he'll teach her his family's Smackdown dance?) but we trust The Good Wife when it comes to bringing in famous people to play themselves or other people. As we await his star turn on March 16, here's our ranking of the cameos that have come before him, and how he might rank.
(Note: To count as a cameo, the famous person has to play him or herself, otherwise it's a guest star role.)
1. Donna Brazille
Ep. 3.5 "Marthas and Caitlins," Ep. 3.16 "After the Fall," and Ep. 5.10 "The Decision Tree"
Brazile's role involves her deciding on who'll speak at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) is in the running. In season five, she comes back to discuss who's considering making the leap to national politics, and goes to a party. "Now he's not presidential material – yet – but clearly putting him in a position to keep his ambitions going – that's the job of a strategist," Brazile told U.S. News.
