Kristin Chenoweth drops out of ‘The Good Wife’ role after head injury on set

About a month after Kristin Chenoweth suffered a head injury during a recurring stint on the set of “The Good Wife,” the actress released a statement Monday saying that she will no longer continue with the multi-episode role.

Chenoweth, who says she is ”getting better slowly,” had been tapped to play a top political reporter on the CBS drama, and digs deep into the Florrick campaign and marriage.

In July, Chenoweth was taken to the hospital after a gust of wind on the show’s Brooklyn, N.Y., set knocked over a piece of equipment, which hit Chenoweth in the head.

“It is with deep regret to inform everyone that due to my injuries, I am unable to return to The Good Wife.” [I’m] getting better slowly, and thank you everyone for your concern,” Chenoweth said in a statement to People Magazine, which noted that she will still appear in the show’s season premiere in late September.
