Nathan Lane stars in "The Good Wife" on CBS as a bottom line-obsessed manager imposed on Lockhart & Gardner by the bank to cut costs and get the firm back to fiscal health. He finds himself at odds with Will, Diane and everyone else at the firm.

On the big screen, Lane recently starred in "Mirror Mirror," opposite Lily Collins, Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer, as Brighton.

Equally successful on stage, screen and television, Nathan Lane was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for the movie version of the Tony Award–winning musical "The Producers," reprising the role he created in the smash-hit Broadway musical.

Lane has also starred in such boxoffice hits as "Stuart Little" and "Mousehunt." He recently wrapped production on "Nutcracker: The Untold Story," opposite John Turturro and Elle Fanning.

Broadway audiences have long embraced Lane as one of the shining lights of the theater. In 1996, his performance in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," directed by Jerry Zaks, earned him the Tony Award, the Outer Critics Circle and the Drama Desk Award. Lane also starred in the blockbuster Broadway production of Neil Simon's "The Odd Couple." In addition, Lane won the Olivier Award for his London performance of "The Producers."

Lane starred in Stephen Sondheim's adaptation of Aristophanes' "The Frogs" at Lincoln Center, for which he wrote the book. In 2006, he starred in the title role of "Butley" on Broadway. He is currently starring in David Mamet's hit play "November" on Broadway. Among other Broadway credits are "Love! Valor! Compassion!"
