    Can’t wait for The Following.

  3. Zan says:

    He was really great in Ringer! This is another reason added to a long list of reasons why i’m looking forward to The Following

    I was hoping for Jason Dohring….

  5. Saint Alicia says:

    Good for him, he’s a fine actor and has a commanding presence. Really enjoy his storyline on the Good Wife so I hope this casting development doesn’t mean Lemond Bishop will remain in jail.

      OMG I love the Bishop storyline & he was great on Ringer, but I didn’t notice it’s the same person until your comment

    Don’t like him. That’s a shame.

  7. tp says:

    I love him. His voice, he’s cute and would be a pretty good cop/agent. I think I will give The Following a chance.

  8. Cathy says:

    Didn’t realize he was the same guy on Ringer; he’s so good at being evil on The Good Wife, I can’t hardly believe it was the same person who was Bridget’s buddy. I’ll watch what he is on.

    Malcolm from Ringer? Wow, I really miss that show. I wish the CW would bring it back. I have no problem watching BOTH The Following and Ringer.
