De Blasio Will Also Play a Mayor on TV

NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 30:  New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio speaks at a press conference to announce the city will not appeal a judge's ruling that the police tactic "Stop-and-Frisk" is unconstitutional, which the judge had ruled over last summer, on January 30, 2014 in in the Brownsville neighborhood of the Brooklyn borough ofNew York City.  DeBlasio, who campaigned for mayor saying he would stop "stop-and-frisk," stands in stark contrast to his predecessor, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who staunchly defended the tactic.

He may be a touch press-shy, but Mayor Bill de Blasio is not camera-shy. Following his Today Show appearance this week and The Daily Show earlier this month, the mayor will follow in his predecessor’s footsteps and appear on The Good Wife, playing himself. De Blasio will reportedly offer some advice to the character Alicia Florrick, played by Julianna Margulies, as she gets ready to address the American Bar Association Conference in New York. It airs March 16.
