I announced a little while back that talented beauty and IT GIRL rising star Nicole Beharie would make her debut as Imani Stonehouse in CBS The Good Wife. Well, the 2nd episode since her debut aired last night. Beharie plays an Assistant U.S. Attorney serving as a prosecution observer to ensure plea deals aren't gender/race biased. She is paired up against Cary (Matt Czuchry) and their characters have a competitive and slightly flirtatious dynamic.

I announced a little while back that talented beauty and IT GIRL rising star Nicole Beharie would make her debut as Imani Stonehouse in CBS The Good Wife. Well, the 2nd episode since her debut aired last night. Beharie plays an Assistant U.S. Attorney serving as a prosecution observer to ensure plea deals aren't gender/race biased. She is paired up against Cary (Matt Czuchry) and their characters have a competitive and slightly flirtatious dynamic.

I've only started watching the show since she's been on, but I've been impressed by the witty dialogue and fantastic acting; the show hasn't proved dull or boring.

Beharie commands the screen playing the astute and sexy attorney; she's received a few accolades for her apperances so far. I have to mention that in general, the show has had somewhat of a presence of male and female black characters. Last night, Beharie was in the room with Renée Elise Goldsberry (who was great as Geneva Pine) and democratic political strategist Donna Brazile was a guest in a cameo.

It looks like the sub-plot of Imani and Cary will develop into something more interesting. They seem to have good chemistry. Since I'm a Good Wife newbie, I don't have the viewing experience of past seasons/episodes to compare what I've seen to. For those of you who are veteran viewers of the show, what do think of Nicole Beharie's addition to the lineup?

You can catch full episodes online at CBS.com. Take a look at Nicole in a clip from last night's episode below.
