Variety posted first look thoughts on CBS’ new drama The Good Wife. The column was pretty positive and provided some good news: Chris Noth, better known as Sex and The City‘s Mr. Big or Law & Order‘s Mike Logan, will be starring as the bad guy.
As previously posted, the series stars Juliana Margulies as the wife of a disgraced politico who gets locked up after a scandal ends his career. Margulies is then transformed from political spouse to breadwinner and must return to work as a lawyer. I was previously delighted by the casting of former Gilmore Girls and Friday Night Lights hunk Matt Czuchry for the series and the addition of Noth makes it even better.
No word, though, on how long Chris Noth’s character will remain in the storylines, if he even makes it past episode one. Remember, the series’ whole reason for being is him going to jail. Here’s hoping they keep him around as a recurring character, atleast. I’m not really pulling for flash backs as those tend to get tiresome, but even disgraced husbands deserve jailhouse visits, right?
