According to Josh Charles, things are about to get even more personal for “The Good Wife.”
That may be hard to believe about CBS’ Tuesday drama that revolves around lawyer and jilted political spouse Alicia Florrick (recent Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Julianna Margulies), but a deeper involvement between her and her boss – and former law-school-mate — Will Gardner (Charles) is very possible in the string of new episodes that starts on Tuesday, Mar. 2.
“I don’t think anybody thought that was all the show was about,” Charles tells Zap2it of the series springboard that sent Alicia’s ex-State Attorney husband (Chris Noth) to prison for on-the-job missteps. “You have a rich group of characters and a wonderful ensemble of actors, and I think it was always the intention to watch these people wrestle with the moral consequences of their choices.”
Some of those may come, and soon, from closer ties between Will and Alicia. Former “Sports Night” co-star Charles notes the co-workers have “a complicated bond” because of their past as well as their present, “and it’s been fun to explore that. She’s married, and [the show’s writers and producers] have taken their time with it; it’s very subtle, and we start to see it rise a little bit. It’ll be fun to see how that plays to the audience. You can’t do it too fast.”
