The Good Wife First Look: Lisa E's in the House!

No, this isn’t a still from an upcoming horror film starring Lisa Edelstein and Josh Charles. It’s a shot of the pair hamming it up between takes on the set of CBS’ The Good Wife, where House‘s former leading lady is playing a morally flexible lawyer with ties to Charles’ Will.

Edelstein tweeted the image Wednesday afternoon from the show’s New York set. “I have to say, [Josh] really makes the workplace a nice place to be,” she cracked of her ex-Sports Night co-star. Charles tweeted back a similarly hostile pic with the caption, “I forgot how much I enjoyed working with Lisa.”

Call me crazy, but I think someone is enjoying her new day job.

    • Thanks!!! She looks great! I think she’s going to have some nice chemistry with this group.

  • Looks like they have fun on set. Good for them. I’m glad that she’s on a quality show now :-) Let’s hope it will be more than 3 episodes.

  • I don’t care about her. Where is Julianna!

  • Sigh. And we all thought Bobbie Bernstein was the crazy one…

  • Not enough cleavage, imo.

    Comment by missy – August 17, 2011 01:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That’s OK. I don’t want to see Josh Charles’ cleavage anyhow.

    • She could wear anything and be sexy. She is one of the hottest ladies on TV. Hope she lands a fulltime gig soon so I can get a regular fix. I will def be watching TGW when she’s on.

  • So lovely. They are having so much fun together. I’m a huge fan of TGW and Josh and i really wish Lisa finds her new home in my favorite show.

    Comment by missy – August 17, 2011 01:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yeah Josh wrangle with this awful woman, i really don`t want this person on the show. I disliked her on House and her fans are crazy. Now she will ruin TGW. :(((

    Comment by helena – August 17, 2011 01:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Sweetie, it’s time to learn new words and change the record. You won’t trick anyone into believing you are intelligent enough to watch TGW. Stick with House, though Cameron is not coming back regardless.

      • LMAO i really miss these hameron nutjobs XD

        Comment by Valeria – August 17, 2011 02:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • You Huddy/LE fans seem more obsessed with Cameron/Jennifer Morrison then her fans are! She’s always the first name that comes up whenever someone admits they don’t care for LE. News flash! Some people just do not like her and that is their prerogative. You do and that’s good for you. It’s time for you all to let your irrational hatred of Jennifer Morrison/Cameron go.

        Comment by Typical jumping to conclusions! – August 18, 2011 01:51 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Actually yes. Everyone who hates Lisa Edelstein is a Cameron fan. No one else can really hate the woman since she is beautiful, talented, funny and has a golden heart. The fact that she was the one chosen by House (or by TPTB) as love interest make people with their own agenda bitter and unhappy.

          Comment by Moi – August 18, 2011 02:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • That’s fine. The type of actors/actresses who are everybody’s cup of tea are generally pretty bland. I can’t understand why people would go out of their way to comment on something that’s about someone they can’t stand…

          Comment by Dani – August 18, 2011 03:28 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Oh really? So why then addressing people who like LE you had to bring up ‘Huddy’ in the first sentence? You gave yourself up. You are a bitter ‘Hameron’ fangirl who can’t get over a fictional storyline and who needs to spill vile just to feel better. Get a friggin life.

          That’s what makes our “hate” for you and the likes of you (not for Jennifer Morrison) completely rational. And guess what, there will be consequences, just wait and see.

          Comment by Hameron_Trolls_Cant_Get_a_Life – August 18, 2011 08:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • You don’t like LE or give a sh-t about TGW, so why are you even commenting on this post? Your trolling couldn’t be more obvious.

          Comment by Iris – August 18, 2011 04:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Agree. Jennifer Morrison fans sre pretty obvious and pathetic. The woman must be very embarrased of her own “fanbase”. It’s funny the kind of noise that 5 deluded hamerons can make

            Comment by Maria – August 18, 2011 05:59 PM PDT  
    • oh, aren’t you charming? Jeez.

      They’re having fun it seems. Can’t wait to see Edelstein working with Margulies, t would be fascinating, and they’re both really beautiful and talented.

      Comment by sam – August 17, 2011 02:03 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • ITA. Totally looking forward to seeing Edelstein and Margulies working together. They both are strong, beautiful women and great actresses. I feel like I’m in for a treat this season.

    • And your post shows you’re not crazy? Funny. GO LISA E!

  • Yay! So great to see them having fun! TGW is going to be great this season, can’t wait.

  • Good to see her having fun on the set. It’s great that she’s moving on and enjoying herself.

  • It’s great to see LE and JC having fun on the set! It’s always a good to see the actors enjoy each other and their work. Thanks for the pictures. Looking forward to the season!

    Comment by Sun – August 17, 2011 01:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • This is so exciting. I love her! She is going to be a great addition to TGW, even if it’s for a short arc. Wonderful move!

  • Cute pic, but does this mean black nail polish is back in because I was not informed.

    Comment by Ashton – August 17, 2011 02:05 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Looks like they are having fun! Lisa is such a wonderful and smart addition, just a dream cast. Gulianna’s promo pics looked fabulous, it’s going to be a very interesting season.

    Comment by fan – August 17, 2011 02:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Fun pic, though this is worthy of it’s own post because…
    I guess it could be considered a “spoiler,” but many actors tweet bts pics from their shows which don’t end up here. Hmmm.
    Well, anyway, it’s nice that TVLine is functioning as a personal reblogging service.
    Excited for TGW to return!

    Comment by Alicia – August 17, 2011 02:18 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Well, it’s a Sports Night reunion, of sorts, a cult show for many. Also Lisa Edelstein has many fans, which means extra traffic to this site. Why not?

      Comment by @Alicia – August 17, 2011 02:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • He’s always seemed to value her and enjoys being with her I think. And he’s supported her all along. I’m glad he’s sharing and excited for her new venture. She looks great.

      Comment by Tammie – August 17, 2011 10:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Because a lot of people (Ausiello readers) love her and felt really upset about the House situation. It’s good to hear updates on her, fans like it, and he gets more hits to his webpage. Win/Win.

  • things are going to be awkward because of that time he slept with her in Spain…

    Comment by sara – August 17, 2011 02:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • He has never been to Spain! He never slept with her–if he’d have slept with her he’d remember!!

      • oh right. that was Roberta…at the Hotel de Espana…in france. my bad.

  • Thanks for the picture! I remember they had a great chemistry on Sports Night. As much as I like Alicia and Will together, Lisa’s character might bring an interesting development. Promising season ahead.

  • what they slept together? in spain?

    Comment by sandy – August 17, 2011 03:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • No, no; it’s an inside joke from Sports Night :)

      Comment by Alicia – August 17, 2011 03:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Oh the memories! Great to see them together having fun. Love TGW, love Lisa Edelstein. Can’t wait.

    Comment by eddie – August 17, 2011 03:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Hahaha, what a fun pic! I wonder what Alicia is going to say seeing these two together. Edelstein is smart and funny, great casting.

    Comment by Marcia – August 17, 2011 03:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Really looking forward to Lisa on TGW, and Kalinda following her and tracking her down. Should be fun. :)

  • Great seeing pics of onset shenanigans, hope they post more–maybe with some Archie and/or Alan?
    Also hope Alicia and Will didn’t sleep together. The finale left it to the imagination so it could possibly be a fakeout.

    Comment by lol – August 17, 2011 06:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Michael, you may have got the timeline wrong. It appears Josh Charles tweeted the first compliment with a photo to Lisa Edelstein. Then Lisa tweeted back a mutual compliment with the second photo. It’s nice to see the cast appreciate Lisa Edelstein. The sequence here is very telling to those of us who follow Lisa’s career.

    Comment by spoilerchicka – August 17, 2011 07:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Speaking of intersecting careers, Josh Charles and RSL both starred in “Dead Poets Society.” Although Josh’s character gets the girl in the end, while RSL’s kills himself. Fun fact.

      Comment by Ariella – August 17, 2011 07:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’m not sure what you mean re the sequence, but it does seem like Josh is having as much fun as she is. I love her laugh and smile. It’s very infectious.

  • Ausiello, you make me happy. :) Thanks for the great pics of Lisa Edelstein and JC. Can’t wait to see her episodes of TGW! ;)

  • Looks like great fun! Thank you for sharing. It will be good to see her on TGW!

    Comment by Crickett – August 17, 2011 09:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Wow. She seems like such a fun person, always laughing and playing. I hope this gives her a chance to really show her talent. She is very good and was very under utilized. Perhaps these smaller stints will be more of an opportunity to pack the punch she’s capable of giving. Can’t wait!

    Comment by Wendy – August 17, 2011 09:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Even without the low cut tops, she is just hot. Doesn’t matter what look they give her, she is a stunning lady. Seems like she’ll be playing another smart, sexy role and I’m all over that. Hot!

    Comment by James – August 17, 2011 09:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Most definitely! Hot!

          Comment by @Shane Charles Lamar – August 17, 2011 10:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree. She is totally stunning. I love her ethnic beauty. The woman can get it.

  • I’m glad they went for a different look for her to seperate her from the Cuddy character. Love the professional look with that touch of wild in the black nail polish and extra ear piercings. She’s one beautiful lady.

    Comment by Anita – August 17, 2011 09:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I don’t know about the clothes and polish, but I agree she is beautiful. Too bad House lost her. She was the eye candy and the leading lady for their show. Two for one money saver. I may just check out The Good Wife.

      Comment by Mike – August 17, 2011 09:58 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Hope that a skirt she’s wearing. I love her legs.

  • I have noticed tweets from the writers, wardrobe and prop departments regarding Miss Edelstein. This show seems genuinely excited to have her on board. She has a very good reputation and I’m glad she was picked up for an arc on TGW. She’ll do well with whatever story they give her. She’s ravishingly talented.

    Comment by Hamp – August 17, 2011 10:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Of course she’s having fun. This lady doesn’t let things bring her down. She knows how to enjoy life. It’s great to see these behind the scenes photos. Hope they will keep it up.

    Comment by Glen – August 17, 2011 10:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • This is going to be good. She is a sexy new addition to TGW team. Her and JM are amazing.

  • So sad she left House. But at least she seems happy. :)

    Comment by Ann – August 17, 2011 10:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Fox and House really lost out with this one. She’s great! I don’t think they ever utilized her talents to their potential on House. CBS and TGW showed some business sense latching on to her so quickly. Can’t wait to see what they write for her.

      Comment by Mark – August 17, 2011 11:06 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • There’s a lot sad about House right now, and a lot of great stuff with TGW. Can’t wait for the season to start!!!!! :-)

      Comment by Mo – August 17, 2011 11:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • There seems to be a lot of men commenting. That’s cool! A lot of people try to say she just has a fangirl following. It’s good to see.

    Comment by Liz – August 18, 2011 01:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • It´s so nice to see both of them enjoying their work together. I hope Lisa will remember this as a very positive experience in her career. I wish her all the best.

    Awesome! It’s nice to see Lisa enjoying herself…
