"The character is a bad guy, which is fun to play," Perry told Zap2It. "I've never played a guy this mean before."

Perry also joked that he campaigned for a number of romantic scenes with Margulies to be included in the episode.

Addressing the tension that emerges between Mike and Alicia on the panel, he teased: "And then it just becomes strictly sexual, right after that. 85% of the scenes are just that, in my contract."

Perry is set to appear in The Good Wife's next episode on April 15 and could see his role extended to next season.

It was revealed last week that former guest stars Michael J Fox and Martha Plimpton will return for the season three finale on April 29.
