How will her character mesh with Diane Lockhart?

On the Christine Baranski-starring show, Sheen will play Roland Blum, "a brilliant, charismatic and Machiavellian lawyer. He is a man of appetites — drugs, sex, you name it — who’s far more interested in winning than the niceties of following the law."

Apart from Good OmensThe Good Fight will be one of Sheen's first series regular roles since Masters of Sex wrapped in 2016. Based on the season description, Sheen's character will be part of Maia Rindell's (Rose Leslie) storyline. The logline reads, "Maia Rindell finds a new Mephistopheles in Roland Blum, a Roy Cohn-like lawyer who is corruption incarnate."
