Question: Did Jane Kaczmarek (Bradley Whitford's wife) ever appear on The Paper Chase TV show or movie? — Rachel K.

Televisionary: Now, Rachel, let me get this straight. In this time of enlightenment, Ms. Kaczmarek's work on Malcolm in the Middle earns her Emmy recognition and all you can do is define her as West Wing-er Whitford's wife? Ah, me.

To answer your query, though, the actress was on the small-screen version of the 1973 film. She played law student Connie Lehman in The Paper Chase: The Second Year, the continuation of the series shown on Showtime in 1983 after CBS' 1979 cancelation of the original Paper Chase. She appeared for only one season, although the show itself made it to 1986.
