Fall TV Preview

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.

  • Smart people – using social media to incite enthusiasm instead of hostility. She & Josh seem to have fun together and that will play well on screen.

  • Ahhh this is so funny! Love the both of them! I just started watching TGW and it is a fantastic show. Lisa E is going to be a great addition to the cast. I only hope she stays longer than the 3ep arc :)

  • TGW wasn’t popular in Europe before news about LE. I decided to watch the show and really like it. They have smart screenwriters and talented actors! We’re waiting for new season, and these pictures are cute. Thanks, Mike!

    • TGW wasn’t popular in Spain at all and now is being commented in tv and press. Glad she will give this show some publicity

  • It’s pleasant to see how supportive actors can be. A rare thing now! LE is gorgeous as usual. House people didn’t appreciate her, it’s a a pity!

  • Is it September yet? I am so grateful to Lisa Edelstein for getting me “released” from House and introducing to TGW. Now I can’t get enough, what a brilliant show, and I almost missed it. So glad she got a vehicle worth her talent. You go, girl!

  • I’ll move-on from House, too. They destroyed his character with that finale, and now I can’t root for that guy anymore! I need to find a new show and Lisa Edelstein is enough for me to try The Good Wife. She’s a great lady! Keep the news of her coming.

    • Ya, think? They ruined his character and made it so much easier to look at other shows. I’m happy to follow LE. What a beauty! And so funny. I can’t wait to see what her character will be like.

  • It is great to see Lisa having fun and can’t wait to see her on TGW.

    I will really miss her on “House” and hope she finds her way back there.

  • She is one of a kind. She has an organic beauty and such a great talent. It sounds like TGW team realizes what a prize they got when they signed her on. She deserves the best. She will give a killer performance, as she always does.

  • She should have stayed on House!

    • If the NBCU suits had offered Lisa an appropriate deal, I think she would have stayed at “House” because she loved that gig. However, they chose to insult her with a low ball offer and she took the proper course and left the show rather than submit to the professional insult. She is looking out for her career and her integrity, who can blame her.

      I wish Lisa well in her new arc on “The Good Wife.” Certainly, “House” will be the poorer for her absence.

  • I’m happy for LE and me. She’s now on a show I’ve never watched and never will watch and for this I am eternally grateful. Seasons 8 is awesome. I’m loving the new women, the cases, and the House/Wilson. I just hope they extend LE’s contract through the whole season so we can both be happy.
