Eye on Emmy: The Good Wife's Josh Charles Hails Breakup Ep, Singles Out Show's Unsung Heroes
It would be tough for Josh Charles to top last year — when he earned the first Emmy nomination of his career for his work as Will Gardner on CBS’ The Good Wife. However, given the weight of his Season 3 story arc — not only did his attorney character enter into (and almost as quickly exit) a romantic relationship with Julianna Margulies’ Alicia, but he was suspended from practicing law and was forced to revisit his past as a gambling addict — the Sports Night alum looks poised to do just that. This time, however, he’s not just likely to get a supporting actor nomination, he could very well walk home with the prize. READ MORE

Exclusive: Lisa Edelstein Opens Up About Her 'Disappointing' House Exit and Good New Gig
A funny thing happened to Lisa Edelstein soon after the news broke that she wouldn’t be returning to House this fall: She started getting phone calls. A lot of phone calls, from people who wanted to work with her. “It was a really nice feeling,” she tells TVLine in her first interview since tendering her resignation from the Fox hit back in May. “It was a new position for me, and it was very exciting.” One of the first overtures to come her way was made by the producers of The Good Wife, who offered her a three-episode arc as Celeste Serrano, a lawyer with ties to Josh Charles’ Will. As she began work on the CBS drama this morning, the actress called from the set to discuss her new gig and reflect on all things House — including her sudden exit, the shocking season finale and whether she’d ever return as Cuddy.
